A..L..A..S..K..A!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After years of dreaming we've successfully arrived with our bikes in King Salmon, Alaska! Today went as smoothly as we could have hoped considering we were all working of of about two hours of sleep.

Two of California's finest hoodloms, Marco and Jeff have joined the ranks for two weeks of rafting and fishing in Katmai National Park. Tomorrow we fly out from King Salmon for two days of fishing at Brooks. From there we rendezvous with our rafting supplies and puddle jump out to Hammersly Lake where we will begin our trip down American Creek. All reports state that we should expect low water and lots of rocks. Having been off the oars for a couple of years this should be a great refresher course.

Oh and I forgot to mention that we somehow lost Marco in Anchorage, Alaska. He is doing his best to sneak onto a flight out here tonight but it is likely that he will not get here until tomorrow morning. Regardless, energy levels are extremely high and we all can't wait to wet a line tomorrow.

Sleeping up here is going to take some getting used to as it does not get dark.

Marsha and Harvey.
Heard you had the time of your life and that every cast was a fish. Harvey wants to know how the eskimo girls are. Is he missing anything? Be Safe.

Yo dudes! Just sifted through your fishing and bear pics. You guys are doing it man! I can only imagine how it feels riding with the wind in your face and the sound of the gears to keep you company.

Keep it real out there.
