I am so excited for you!! And how brave to consider the floatplane trip.


Wow, Amy -- those are serious to-do lists (mine usually run more along the lines of "suspend newspaper delivery; buy dental floss."

Arranging travel for older relatives, booking float planes, and such is a lot more serious stuff! BTW, I think the float plane plan sounds fantastic -- actually, I love the sound of the Alaskan cruise overall (and the salmon will be extraordinary)

Perhaps you'll get to see some grizzlies as well!
