My friend who owns the KLR is lucky I'm a "low-maintenance" female. I will save him some money as I plan on paying for the gas and camping out along the way, although I hope to stay in a hostel in Skagway, just in case it rains. That way I'll have a dry place to organize my gear for the ferry ride and the subsequent flight home from Juneau. I was going to leave on a Friday morning, but now I hope to sneak out of work a couple hours early on Thursday afternoon and camp outside of Glennallen my first night. I'll arrive in Skagway Saturday afternoon and should have time to do some hiking or exploring or possibly kayaking, especially since the ferry doesn't leave until 3:00 p.m. the following day. I'll skip the jewelry stores! I would rather spend money on farkles for my bike instead of myself.
maybe I could "dance for farkles" in a saloon in Skagway. I would have a whole new crowd to perform for!
