Boyz Trip 2

The next morning we grabbed some breakfast in Whittier (Reindeer sausage omelette, yum) and headed to the outfitters. It was raining pretty good at this point, so those who didn't have rubberized raingear with them rented some. Kind of looked like we had a uniform at that point:

We got a little kayak fitting and orientation from our outfitter, Lois:

Then we loaded up kayaks and gear in a van and trailer and headed down to the docks, where we met our "water taxi."

The water taxi took us from Whittier first east, then south through the Culross Passage to the spit of land just NW of Applegate Island (a little over an hour trip), where we unloaded and made our first camp:

First order of business was stringing some tarps to keep the rain off:

It was kind of a learning curve - our first tarps were strung kind of lamely, but by the time we got to this one (over my tent) we had it down a little better.

Wow, too many pictures. I'll continue this in another post, again...

Can't say I remember ever eating reindeer. Does it taste like venison? This looks like a great start- cozy little camp, quiet.
