Last Days…..Skagway to Seattle to ?…

Howdy All,

As our trip winds down, I think we are all ready to get home. Getting up everyday and packing up to hit the road on a regular basis, gets tiring.

We have now traveled from Skagway, via the Motor Vessel “Columbia,” which is part of the Alaska Marine Highway System to Bellingham. The “highway” is owned and operated by the State of Alaska. They do a great job!

La Kitten had to run away from Ms Irene today so she is not able to relay El Gato’s post he has so faithfully written. Until tomorrow, please accept this teaser video.

Is El Gato chasing the B’man or is B’man chasing El Gato?

Howdy Folks,

Today we left our luxurious digs in Paxson, AK and traveled to Glennallen, AK for breakfast. After deep analytical thought, I split from the B’man and headed north, back to Tok, AK, where once again, we have a room at the Snowshoe Motel. B’man went crazy and rode south over the mountains to Valdez, AK.  After seeing the beginning of the Alaska Pipeline, he thought it only right that he should see the end. I said, “Good for you,” and continued on to Tok! (Goto Map Below)

The road from Glennallen was under construction for 14 miles.  It was quite the slow-go for a while, but it did pass through some nice mountains and  scenery.
