    Alright, let's plan on the August dates, unless someone has some strong opinions otherwise!

    Let's plan to finalize and commit and book tickets in EARLY JUNE.

    Will that be enough time for everyone to get vacation time?

    coby, do you think the ferry will be full by then? Should we go for earlier?

    Are those dates the best? There are sailings that leave the day before and come back the day after if you wanna move it. I picked those dates thinking it would probably be easier to just get the one week off and not split if over the two. (I updated the OP)

    (woot for some commitment here!! :D)

    Coby, do you think it would it be worth is to bring my dirtbike? I know that there is some riding to be done but wasn't sure if we would be wheelin in any of those areas.. or if the trails are super knarly and having a bike in the bed of the truck would be a bad idea.....

    man this sounds like a lot of fun. I doubt I'd be able to swing it with time off. I'm taking 3-4 days off to go dipnetting in July so asking for more in August may be pushing it. I'd love to go and camp and fish the entire time. And wheel of course. sounds like a blast.

    ya sounds good

    well it's up to you guys, there is a track and chiniak would be AWSOME to ride on a dirt bike my buddies do it all the time. The only thing is idk if you would want to wheel saltree with it in the back of your truck. But you could always just put it in my garage for that day. So bring it or not it's up to u.

    Ya it would be fun specially a mini bike

    We've had a little debacle at work, so I've pretty much got to be on call for the field around that time.
