Jerilyn Lester says, "There isn't another airport in the world that you have to do that."

Yes, there is. Prince Rupert, B.C., our neighbor, has an airport on an island. To get to their airport you get on an old bus, the bus gets on the ferry and then it is several miles to the airport where you get off and go into the terminal.

I much prefer our short walk to-n-from the ferry and I rather enjoy the short ferry ride across the Tongass.

Until retirement I was a regular year-round commuter from the Ketchikan Airport on Alaska Airlines.
