Last year at this time, I was driving frantically through the Yukon headed towards Skagway Alaska. I arrived in Skagway exhausted, and celebrated my birthday alone in an empty restaurant in town. The next day I got on a ferry and headed south and then embarked on an amazing trip.
This year I will be spending the evening with my wonderful and amazing wife, who lets me go on trips like this. Though in the back of my head, part of me will be thinking about the next time I can get out to the edge. Where the water is cold, and the weather is bad, and there is nothing left to do but paddle home. Thanks to everyone who reads here, and to my amazing wife who understands what makes me tick, and more importantly is okay with it.
