Good for you for posting a poll, you are becoming a regular and that's great! Before you know it I'll be after you to fit a trip down to the valley into your schedule. I spoke to ATEC today and the boat is finished, we had a new motor put on so I can haul people with. The old motor was a good (sorta) one man & dog rig but when you put a couple adults in the seats it couldn't get up on step. We're hoping this will do the trick.

I have an out of state trip coming next week and will be gone for 7 days. After that I need to get about the business of marauding the trout & grayling while I scout the rivers. By early June there will be Kings, how's early June look if you know that far ahead?

I figured the subject had came up, I looked at a couple threads about it. It is interesting for me to see how opinion changes through time. I have no clue what June looks like yet. I unfortunately rarely know my schedule until a week or two prior. And with me being off recovering right now, I'm clueless as to what's going on. I will definitely be looking to make a trip that way though. How's the fishing between between Nenana and you. Is there maybe a place we can meet somewhere in between sometime? In the Denali park area roughly. It may make thing easier as I wouldn't have to get permission (for a lack of a better term) to go to that area. The border as to distance I can go without a pass is around Kashwitna Lake.
