Pyramid is a great climb, I did that one twice and Barometer twice, maybe 3 times.

Nice!

If I were you guys I would try and book the dates to the ferry sched cause there are only certain days that they stop her on the way down and back of the aleutians chain

What exactly is your June/July status?

Sorry I am not super familiar with the military and exactly what different statuses entail.

And definitely head out Chiniak Road.
Ya def gana take everyone out there that's such a cool area especially when it's sunny out. But we will def hit that on our way to the logging roads

I think June is too early for our meet anyway.

So the last week of July would work? And then Aug/sep?

Right now I am thinking early August would be good.

How does that work for people?

Not good on Saltrey Cove...Chiniak Hwy, you'll be good for the most part. I went out a few of the logging roads off Chiniak Hwy, I wouldn't try Saltrey on anything other then a lifted truck or an ATV.

sweet! Well, you should have plenty of warning of when we are coming

So I don't know what dates I was looking up before to get $74 one way.....

I did some more looking today for july/august. It ranges from $220 to $300 one way (you+truck) in that time period it looks like.... Just FYI

Hahaha. No kodiak for you! .

Just make sure you don't miss when we all buy feery tickets. If youre not on the list i wont remember to send you angry reminder messages. That might have just been because i wanted money though...

HAAAHAHA. True. My summers truly are the busiest though. Always hard for me to plan. BUT, I will make it work whichever way I can.

Your note scared me a little. All I heard in my head was "I want my money bitch! !!""" Lol

Looks like it's $179 through September 2013 for our tacomas ($74 for passengers). Do they occasionally run specials?
