It’ll be hard enough to get my Swiss Army knife on the cruise ship !

Although our lady guide on a trail walk today had a stainless short barreled 12ga over her shoulder . 
 

besides it’s all really old people , some with canes , I can simply knock them over then run . 
 

I also put some salmon in the Mrs pockets ….. and she’s slow as hell .

We were there last summer for two weeks - ecocruise on a small 16-person vessel for a week hiking and kayaking in Prince Williams sound, then heli-fished three days on Clear Creak out of Talkeetna while the wife hiked Denali (Mt. McKinley for those of us who grew up in the 70s), then a bit more hiking for the two of us around Talkeetna. Awesome trip, great weather, lots of wildlife. I'm glad you're enjoying it. 

The wife was back up to Alaska two weeks ago for a meeting on perceptual learning, but didn't get to venture far from Alyeska lodge with dawn to dusk talks, and it rained non-stop while she was there. We made up for it by hooking up in Banff (her coming from the west and me coming from the east, with no hiccups amazingly) and hiking for a week; unreal vistas, too dang many people. We were first on the trail in the morning and had them to ourselves going up. But coming down was like bumper cars with dozens if not hundreds of other folks climbing. The trail head parking lots were full by 9 am. Lake Louise and Moraine Lakes were almost completely inaccessible. LIke I say, amazing place, but I won't be going back soon.

loved Talkeetna !  Was mid 80.s in early July  09 . Shop owners were complaining how hot it was. Thye'd leave shop doors wide open and said the day before we were there thay had to close them as a few grizz were just roaming around town
