It was overcast but not too bad. The view made up for it. The day cruise out of Whittier was perfect weather - bright and sunny, about 65. We can't wait to go back.

Thats awesome. Bird point is really cool. Next time venture a little further south to Seward or Homer. Really good saltwater fishing if you're into that. The towns are both quite a bit bigger than Whittier as well so there is a bit more to do.

Great to know, thanks! We'll probably be back next year! And for anyone who needs convincing that Alaska is beautiful, I have tons of photos.

That sounds like a high speed existence right there dude.

KFT!!! Kenai Fjords Tours! I worked on their new catamaran - that thing was sweet. I had a blast. My uncle worked for CIRI and told me about the company. Seward was fun to say the least.

You know any guides in Soldotna - Tim Hiner??

No I don't know Tim. I worked pretty close with KFT last couple years and then I just got a job at Shoreside Petro. I just filled the Ailalik Voyager two days ago.

My family owns 3 properties in Alaska one in Clam Gulch by the Kasilof and two by Anchor Point. I've been going there every year for the past 8 years. This summer I'm working up there for ten weeks. That's Alaskan enough for me and you can check my gallery for prOOf.

you can get by without a block heater and yes eagle river is a decent place. just stay away from mid town and mountain view. South Anchorage is good area.
