This week I've had my brother on board sailing with me and its been great. For the most part when people I know have had family on board they've been exhausted but even though we've been hanging out he's a pretty self sufficient guy so when I'm busy he does his own thing. That last part is key - he does his own thing.
In Juneau I had things to do so I got him hooked up with a zip line and canopy tour which he enjoyed immensely. In Sitka, I was able to go with him on a 4 by 4 adventure to grizzly meadow on Kruzof island while in Ketchikan, I was again busy so he went on the Bearing Straight Crab fishing expedition on his own.
It was a great way to break up the contract, but now it's time to focus on the charters coming up at the end of my contract and a preparing for a few special things that are in the works.
