In 2010 me and my two boys spent the summer kayaking and Camping around the San Juan Islands. Thinking about doing it again.

I think your pictures are great!
Ever thought about kayaking up the Inside Passage in SE Alaska? The San Juans are great, no doubt about it, but you have all these state parks and private lands to contend with here. But the Inside Passage is real wilderness. I miss being able to just pull up on any beach with the place all to yourself, having a bonfire right on the beach, and no one will bother you.....setting foot at places few have ever been to.

I would love to take that trip in a Kayak. I love the wilderness. Camping, hiking... Isolation in the wilderness puts me so much at ease. My retirement goal getting a little land in Alaska, building a cabin and off grinding.

Nice. Have you been to Puget Sound before? I just have a Catalina 22 w/ a wing keel. It's not bluewater, but fine for sailing protected waters. I bought it to learn on and hoping to sail it up to Southeast Alaska in spring of 2020. After that, I'll probably be ready to sell it and get a larger boat.
if you are headed to alaska stop in at ganges harbour on saltspring island. huge boatpunk community here.

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
