Going out to sea.... I would definately have at least a warm coat onhand as the wind alone will be potentially cool or cold enough...I always had to wear a long sleeve hoodie to a heavy coat whenever I sailed in the gulf or passage (during June and July), pretty much anytype of coat short of a parka or my -50 below plus toasty eskimo coat.
As far as the IGA store in Delta Junction, they always have the freshest produce onhand....the only other place with this quality in the far north region I witnessed was Safeway in Prince Rupert, everywhere else in between is hit and miss with fruits and produce.
Fred Meyer (Kroger Foods) does have the fresher stocked produce in the Fairbanks region, but not like the IGA store in Delta Junction.

Wish I'd known you then! At about the same time as your trip to Alaska, and after taking a term off from college to tour Mexico with two friends in an old VW van, tried to get one of them to ride to Alaska with me on our bikes - mine a 250cc Yamaha. Never happened and I've thought of the lost opportunity many times since. Soon married and went from two bikes, one English sports car, one go-cart, and one hydroplane to a wife, daughter and one Chevrolet. Those were the days!
Had breakfest this morning with a old friend who did the Mexico trip in 1961 with another old friend in a 1959 Mec 190 diesel. They went south down pass Mexico on the Pan American Hwy as far as the could. What year was your Yamaha 250?
