And then we have the ferry. Look at the cost to be locked in a little room with no windows. Some of you may like roughing it and sleep on the couches or floors - maybe even the solarium only to be woke up by the crew smoking cigs at 2 AM. Face it we are stuck here.
Road trips are great. There
are so many things you see and learn when you get out on the
road. Last year we were driving through Arizona and there were
so many little RV Cities in the desert. Where do they all go
in the summer when it's a hundred plus? Well I bet if there was
a road out of town it would be a lot more affordable to drive
through Southeastern Alaska. I would hate to see what it costs
to drive a motor home on the ferry. We could build camp grounds
and take some of the impact off Ward Lake as it is the only lake
we could drive to and fish. We would not all need to have our
own boats to just go out and enjoy our beautiful area.
Here's my closing comment cause I need to make some coffee. We lack recreation sites in Ketchikan and a road to the mainland is going to open that up and we will all enjoy it more than we could imagine. The rest of the people who come to Ketchikan will always want to come again and that better than them leaving say it is too damn expensive to come here again.
