In the 90's, Sheila, Gladys, Del and I went on an Alaska cruise vacation that following the Klondike gold rush. We started with a 3 day ship cruise through the Alaska in-let passage to Juneau and Skagway. The view was so beautiful on the ship that Gladys did not go to the casino one time... at least that I saw. Next, we boarded a tour bus for a 5 day bus ride that followed the trail the 49'er gold miners took to get to the gold fields in Dawson. The bus driver was a pleasant young kid who I'm sure was told to played the song "North to Alaska" by Johnny Horton every 30 minutes. It was funny because the after the first day it got annoying but, by the time we got to Chicken Alaska we were all mouthing the words. The reason I am telling this story is because it was on this trip on one of the many stop over towns where we ate dinner, Del got a salmon and I got a steak filet. I told him that I had never had salmon. He suggested half my steak filet for half his salmon. It was my first time I had salmon and have loved it ever since. One of the many memories I will have of Del.
