Nice looking tow vehicles but where are the hitches? Nice photos. Rode the ferry from Haines to Prince Rupert and the water taxi ferry from Haines to Skagway on another trip.

Thanks for sharing. Great pictures. The only time I was in Ketchikan was on the destroyer USS Watts, DD567, in the summer of 1974, at the same time as the "Tonkin Gulf" incident. The trip included Sitka and Juneau. It's a long story, but provided me (17yrs. old) with a lot of memories and stories to tell, like traditional bar fights with lumberjacks and fishermen who were in town at the same time, and then we (US Navy) shows up and all hell breaks loose. Good times!

That's funny . I don't remember any women while I was there. They were probably smart enough to stay home when the three of us were in town at the same time. I put 1974 as the date in my previous reply, but it was actually 1964.[emoticon]

Cool job with pretty sunsets during the summer but I bet it gets interesting during the winter. Could be a good topic for TC University to post some information about how to and what to expect traveling on the Alaske Marine Highway system with an RV. On WA Sate ferrys, we have to shut off and tag our propane tanks for the duration of the ride. That's fine for a couple hours with a propane fridge but after that, your icecream is a shake.
Enjoyed your pictures and information Tiny.
