Pos: 55.4095,-162.672 Loc: Operl Island East Acc: Hilleberg Keron 4 tent We found over HUNDRED Japanese glass net floats on a STORMY DAY! It was not an inviting forecast, south east strong winds 20-30 knots. South east means it is blowing perpendicular offshore to our traveling direction north east, which keeps the seas low, but […]

Pos: 54.8651,-163.4104 Loc: False Pass Acc: Trident Seafood bunk no paddling today I missed the official breakfast time between 5-7 am, not the time I like to get up on “dry” days…so two plums and a piece of pastry did the job. But I was diving into the canteen’s lunch buffet, with a huge piece […]
