Short Alaska Summer

We would normally depart for Alaska about now. But a few weeks ago Paulette had rotator cuff surgery. We originally tried to expedite the shoulder repair last fall, but modern medicine seems to have a six month medical mill before the surgery can happen. The doctor wants her to stay in SoCal for three months post surgery. The plan is currently for Mel to leave late June and drive the truck pulling the trailer, which will be loaded with supplies. He should arrive a week later and get the cabin open and operational. Paulette is not to use her arm at all so will fly up in early July. We are both anxious to get up north.
