We're back from the Chilkoot and yes, my wildest dreams did come true. It was an awesome adventure. One thing bothered me though. Everyone we talked to before and during the trip asked what our biggest concern was for the trail. "Weather", we said. "Why? Are you from a rainy place?!" they queried.
Just so you know, here's a portion of Juneau's weather summary:
"July had 19 days with measurable rainfall. There were a few dry stretches with the longest lasting five days between the 25th and the 30th."
Coincidence? I think not.
