Will you get yo'se'f outta here, Grant-san. You have no reason to remember 
but in mid-winter I emailed you and terrible Tom that I expected to be in 
Vancouver end-May. The threat was real and beautiful wife Ann and I will be 
at the Fairmont Waterfront late next Wednesday night 5/29. Puh-lease turn off 
the snow & rain. 

I'll be in meetings and programs a good part of the time but we really must 
get together. I recall letting Tom know and he said he and Tuuliki expected 
to be home visiting his mother next week. Might Henning be available?

Saturday 1 June we embark M.S. Veendam for Alaska. The shipboard cruise is 
only five days, then by train to Denali, Dawson etc and to Fairbanks for 
return flight. Planning on taking two M6s, 25, 35, 50 and 90 lenses and an 
Leicaflex SL with 180 Elmarit and 2X extender. Mainly Kodachrome 64 and 200 
and a few rolls of Tri-X for on-board people shooting. Or should I take some 
fast color print film - with which I have virtually no experience?

Look forward to seeing you.
