I just booked the ferry for Valdez to Whittier. I met a woman at work yesterday who just moved from Alaska. When I told her about this trip she wasn't sure if it would be possible to take a ferry from Valdez to Whittier. That kind of worried me so I looked it up and called. Turns out that was a good thing; there is not always room for vehicles. So, we should be all set, I hope.
The reservation agent asked if I'd been on the ferry before and I told her I was, in 5th grade. She needed my birthdate and after giving it to her I said she could see now that 5th grade was a long time ago.
