I've been in Kodiak for two days getting prepared to take off--today we have a 36 (!) hour ferry ride and then two plane trips to my final destination of Port Moller. But it will take ten days, as I will be disembarking along the way to help out at other field camps. It'll be cool to check out different ports along the Aleutians. I just got some brand new raingear and Xtra Tuff boots, courtesy of Fish and Game. Nice to start off the season with new gear, even though I have to return it at the end. Kodiak is beautiful and rainy, as I expected. Lots of fishermen (people) coming and going. It's a pretty big town--it even has a Subway sandwich restaurant, which serves a salmon sandwich. More later, I hope!

A 36-hour ferry ride is definitely worth breaking up into shorter segments! Hope you're able to post about your Fish & Game adventures.

I love traveling in the Aleutians. Nikolski is one of my favorite places. I hope you have a safe journey.

Yes, the first segment is 18 hours and then we'll get a break for an hour and a half, then another 18 hours, then a few days break before the plane trips! thanks, Ni! I am going to go to Chignik, Sand Point, King Cove and Port Moller...
