Heading Home from the Legislature - Ten Pounds in a Five Pound Bag

Marlene and I have been packing our little Toyota Matrix all day. It's like trying to pack ten pounds into a five pound bag. Tomorrow morning at 5:00AM, we catch the ferry to Haines, Alaska out of Auke Bay (a few miles north of Juneau). The ferry traves to Haines via the Lynn Canal. And no, "Lynn Canal" wasn't named after me. I'm a family history buff, and know that no Lynn in my branch of the Lynn family since 1775 moved to Alaska.

From Haines, we'll go up to Haines Junction, home via Tok and Glenallen. I've driven from Haynes Junction to Anchorage twice, but this will be our first jaunt from Haines to Haines Junction. We hope to be home sometime Sunday evening.

We're looking forward to returning home. Hope we don't have to evict a burglar from our home!
Blogs will continue as soon as I can get a computer up and running back home. Hang in there!

This 2005 session of the 24th Legislature has been overall very good. More later about what happened.
