No we leave the 30th...The only update is I'm still working and putting things together on the trailer as I needed to upgrade a few components. The original date was the day after fathers day last year.

Do you have your route mapped out or are you going to be spontaneous?
Or a mixture like I do.

Well we finally got back Monday and had to reroute a few times and cut the trip short by a week (total about 5 weeks on the road) but it was a great trip! Skagway is smaller than I imagined.British Columbia and the Yukon is stunning and the fly fishing was great! We spent 3 days in Seattle and I have to say I have never seen a place with so much litter on the ground...it's everywhere and I was very surprised.

The only part that dragged out was the drive across Alberta and Saskatchewan...it's one giant farm...lol. We met some great people along the way and I'd recommend this trip to everyone!

Welcome back....

Too bad you had to cut it short... Looks like you guys had lots of fun.

Yes, she had an injured toe nail that healed badly when she was a pup. I didn't discover that until we got her home from the breeder. The short of it is I had to have her two toe nails removed and now in rough terrain I have to boot her.

At least she has some stylish footwear.

Nice! Some Graying on the fly? Never caught one, people seem to enjoy catching them though.

The equipment was all good...Carls knives were the latest kitchen addition...they are very nice. I'm glad I toted 12 Gallons of fuel, I never emptied all of the RotoPax but used the reserves an easy 8 times. Usually only adding 4 gallons to the tank.
