The New York Times Destroys SE Alaska

Post by section8 » Wed May 23, 2018 5:39 pm

This is a good article about a fantastic way to visit Southeast Alaska. The ferries are a fun way to travel.

I always book a room, though. Fuck camping on the deck. Also, John Muir was a mentally ill racist.

Thanks. I used an incognito window to view that, since I'm out of free articles for the month.

Chip, you can also use your web browsers private viewing option to get around the free articles limit. That's what I do anyway.

Now that's the way I'd love to see Alaska. Seems like the only thing anyone I've ever known has done is take a cruise, and I honestly can't think of a style of travel I'm less interested in. Crammed on a huge fucking ship with loads of overweight and obese suburbanites only stopping periodically at port for a couple hours of souvenir shopping. No thanks.

May have to explore the possibility of heading up there and doing something similar in the future. Thanks for sharing.

The cruises can be very economical ways to see that part of the state, but yeah, there’s some serious shortcomings.

There are some smaller ships (up to 200 passengers) that do some interesting trips but those are pretty pricey.

Take the ferry one way and drive the other.

I've taken loads of ferries in SE and they are nice, except there is no internet much of the time. On a three day trip you get jonesing for news. So adjust your mentality beforehand.

OTOH, you can take a ferry from Bellingham to Dutch Harbor. It has to be the longest ferry route on earth.

From Bellingham to the end of the chain? Thousands of miles. It’s three days from Bellingham to Ketchikan and probably 2 days from Ketchikan to Haines or Skagway. Two days to get from Juneau to Whittier and about a week to go from Whittier to Dutch harbor.

I’ve always wanted to take it to Dutch.

That is the way to do it, then fly back. Flying to Dutch it would be too easy to miss the ferry due to a cancelled/delayed flight.
