Travel Blogs from Juneau
Our second day off the boat saw us land at the Alaskan capital, Juneau. Again, another unemployed comic called Andy drove us from town to the trail to hike out to the Mendenhall Glacier. Again, it was apparent that Andy loved Texans too. We saw plenty of wildlife between his jokes, including Brown Bear (which Tracey struck up a good rapport with) and bald eagles. We also ...

I managed to grab hold of the rail and look back to watch the whole bucket of crab we just spent 30 minutes preparing to cook start to slide off the aft deck towards the side. Bob quickly yelled "Get that ******* crab!" I ran to the back and stopped the bucket before it went overboard! Nice! We cleaned up the mess and laughed about it for awhile and by then the crab was ready and we had a mean ...
