Glad to see the increasing interest!
Generally we've gone on a Saturday and started early morning. With the distance and several stops along the way for bathroom breaks and photo ops, it takes a while to get down to Seward.
Some people have chosen to catch up with us later and have formed several smaller groups for the return trip home. I've seen some cool pictures from the return trips since the sun is progressively setting by then.
If the weather craps out on us for the cruise (like snow when most people still have their summer tires), what do you guys think about back-up plan such as a big AKIC BBQ, maybe at someone's place? I figured if people are already making arrangements for the time off then they should at least be guaranteed SOMETHING.
