That may have made it worse, but I guess if you had stayed in hypothermia would have got you...

I will definitely visit Wrangell sometime. I don't know that this will be the year. It looks as if more rampant Wall St. speculation in the commodities markets might just make $5 per gallon fuel a reality. That really puts a damper on my long road trips.

Gas has been $4.20 here for 6 months. I'm sure the next barge full will be $5. You don't need a car here anyway, plenty to borrow from for trips out the road & the town's so small you can walk everywhere you need to go. Take the ferry. I'll pick you up.

Wow, thanks GrammasCabin. That's very kind of you. If I head up to AK, I'll be in my truck with a camper on back, and the pup in tow. At 140 lbs, I certainly can't walk him on the ferry! I'd really like to see your little island, though. I love it.
