We have a floatplane tour to Misty Fjord around 2pm. Other than that we are at loose ends. I'll DM you my cell. I have no service here on the ship & the internet is barely working.

Keep in mind you may not have service when you get up here. Lots of people don't. Some do, just depends on the carrier. Is the internet onboard really $5 a minute now? I've heard it was. There are a couple of good, much cheaper, internet cafes in town.
It should be clearer tomorrow than it has been lately, hopefully good weather for flying. Misty Fjords is awesome.

when you're in juneau, right off the docks you will see a white 4-story buiding, with a bank on the first floor.
There a 3 guest wireless open no password wap's you can hook into there from outside. totally legal and free.
Also downtown Heritage Coffee had free wireless as of a week ago. Be polite and buy a cup tho before using.

I'l make it easier to understand...

Juneau weather:
Until late October, drizzle with rain, with occasional rain followed by drizzle. Cloudy, windy with occasional rip-your-skirt off gusts.
A newcomer who insisted on using an umbrella downtown was later discovered on the outskirts of Haines after a Taku gust.

You can also get free wireless internet at the library in Juneau. It's on top of the parking garage by the city docks. Here's a link to the north cam from the library:

Well what do you know, as soon as we get a gloomy weather report, it turns great outside.
Blue skies and sunshine. Still cloudy, but I'll take it. Hope it keeps up.

It's hotter than hell here but I saw some ripe blackberries back in the woods the other day. I guess I'll have to go get some and see if I can make a decent daiquiri or something.
