Alaska

I took these pictures on Monday just a few hours after dropping Trav off at the airport for his 6 weeks in Alaska (puffy eyes, anyone?). I got a lot of questions about his departure, so I figured I'd explain a bit here. Two of our friends who are brothers own a 32' fishing boat up in Alaska, and needed another crew member. Since Trav is going to school right now, it was super easy for him to take the summer session off and head up to help them out. He'll be one of three people on the boat working to catch around 100,000 lbs of sockeye salmon for Trident Seafood. He's done it once before, and while it is a lot of work, he also had a lot of fun, and was able to make a lot of money. 

The best part is that on his last day, I'm flying up to Alaska, and we're hopping on a week-long one-way cruise from Whittier (near Anchorage) to Vancouver, BC. I'm super excited to go kayaking around the glaciers, see lots of wildlife, and, most importantly, have Trav to myself for a week before we come back to the real world and get back into the routine of work and school. 

While I'm on the cruise, I'll be needing guest posts - I'll put out an official request in early July, but feel free to shoot me an email before then if you're interested!
