Okay, I���m heading to Alaska at the end of this month and will be travelling around for 5 weeks using the Alaska Marine Highway. I���ve spent ages planning the trip and am pretty much sorted out with hostel accommodation in places where I���m planning to spend a night or two. My only problem is that because of the schedules, I need to stay in Ketchikan for 2 nights (10 and 11 March) before the Cross Gulf trip. I haven���t had any reply to e-mails to the two hostels there and I���m getting a bit anxious because I���m travelling alone and can���t afford the B&Bs/hotels/motels. Anybody out there got any ideas?
