Sam had one thought as he locked the door to his home and waited for the cab. Alaska and the sea. A lifelong yearning. As a boy he was fascinated listening to his father’s sailing adventures in Southeast Alaska. The images in his mind were as vivid today as when first imagined—rugged forested islands amidst a water wilderness with a dramatic background of glacially scoured mountains and valleys. Few people could comprehend the vastness of the 49th state, fewer still its extraordinary diversity.
A typical warm morning in southern California. Too comfortable, too easy, thought Sam. He longed to feel a gripping wind. Saltwater stinging his face, the raw, wild sea surrounding him. Finally after so many years dreaming he’d see Alaska for himself. One last real adventure.
