Airport Shuttle CLose Down

I was sorry to read about the closure of the Ketchikan Airport Shuttle. I drove many a trip for the KAS back in the early days. Many a story could be told about the trips people like Larry Erickson, myself, and many others made at all hours of the day. We transported famous people like Jonathan Winters, vacationers and travelers from all over the world, and TONS of many of our local residents and best friends.

Many memories stand out from those trips. Especially for me, the time I had a van load of workers headed to KPM for shutdown maintenance, and the times I drove the women bowlers headed to the State Bowling Tournaments.

It's too bad something couldn't be worked out. I think all former drivers should get together and write a memoir book! It's a service lost. Also, it helped me getting experience to drive for Cloud 9 shuttle in San Diego for a a time!

Hi Ken, Hi Bob. Sorry to see the shuttle close up shop.
