[report]Seems like the board needs a little kick in the fuk and I've been saving this for a rainy day [strike]i'm just really damn busy/lazy[/strike]



But life seems to get in the way. Truth is we did this trip for just those reasons. To get away.

What started as a family vacation 4 years ago for a halibut trip blossomed into a dream to explore and fish as much of Alaska DIY style as we could. Close to a year and a half of research and planning went into this.



Anyways.. on with it.








Sit back.. pour a drink and hopefully.. enjoy.



Day 1 Itinerary



Wake up at 2:30am drive to BWI. No worries we'll be on the stream by 5p AK..maybe

Pick up RV.. stock up on 2 weeks plus supplies. It wasn't enough.

Tired, jetlagged, anxious for what was to come we retreated drinking beer under an Alaskan star filled sky.

[report]Day 1 + 1

Once again we found ourselves full from a meal of the freshest silver salmon you could ever imagine. Drinking beers, reminiscing on the past day. Was this even real. That 3 average guys from PA thousands of miles away from home up here doing it right. Doing it the way we wanted to. The light faded and we watched the dall rams graze on the mountains above the mighty glacial fed river around the glowing warmth of the camp fire.

Life is good... only 13 more days to go.

More to come....[/report]

I'd suggest going a little easy on the filters though :cool
I suggest you contribute something of substance, you know... an introduction, a trip report, or something... anything, before proffering suggestions to those who do.
