    Dang!

    That looks like the time I left the boat high and dry in Alaska on our bear hunt when we went after a bear on our last day there and while we were gone the tide went out and we didn't have a drop of water within 4 miles of the boat. Literally.

    My wife wasn't in the mood for Clamming...

    It was a late night getting back to camp and more of an exciting boat ride than I anticipated.

    Went to the processor yesterday to check on my halibut & clams. They weighed everything and it looks like I have 3# left to fill the box. I found some great prawns that we put in a basket and on the BBQ grill that were to die for. So Monday I'll buy 3# of them to round out the box. Gonna be some great eating when we get it all home to Colorado.

    Did I hear you say that there is going to be a welcome home BBQ at your place in a couple of weeks?

    CC I'm curious as to how much Halibut and clams weight-wise you are shipping home and how much would it cost?
    When all the trees have been cut down, when all the animals have been hunted, when all the waters are polluted, when all the air is unsafe to breathe, only then will you discover you cannot eat money.

    All of the processors are set up to pack in insulated boxes. They vacume pack and freeze everything. The boxes are designed to hold 50# and meet "excess baggage" requirements. Alaska Airlines charges $25. They say it will keep the contents frozen for 24 to 36 hours. I also made sure the motels we are staying at before & after the flight can store my frozen stuff.

    We brought a duffle bag with boots, rain gear and heavy jackets as excess baggage on the flight up. I am going to the UPS store next and have it packaged and shipped home UPS. That frees up my excess baggage allotment.

    I was going to ups a 50lb duffel from fairbanks last year thinking it would be cheaper than the $150 3rd bag fee delta wanted. Ups wanted $260

    Tonight is the last night on the Kenai as we leave in the morning for Anchorage and fly home on Saturday. It has been a glorious 27 days. Seen some spectacular country, caught some fish and saw lots of wildlife. Made some new friends and want to come back to see more. It is addicting.
