Launching Sept. 1

On August 31, I'll be packing the last of my gear into The Truck, handing the apartment keys over to the landlord, and driving from Anchorage to Whittier, where the next evening I'll load The Truck and myself aboard the M/V Kennicott sailing to Juneau.

After two days in Juneau, I'll be boarding the M/V Columbia and sailing Alaska's indescribable Inside Passage, finally arriving at Bellingham, WA on Sept. 8. After that, I'm heading to Portland, OR, for a few days of staging and seeing friends before driving off into the unplanned.

Eventually, I'll wind up somewhere around Pittsburgh to be around family for a couple of years while I go back to school... but I'll be in no hurry to get there, and there's no schedule to keep.

Here, I'll be posting stories, photos, and eccentric rants inspired by my encounters along the way.
