The night before Colin had told me that two of the helicopters would be rolling back to Juneau and there was a chance I could jump on for a free ride if I told them I was a friend of his. That morning I dropped off Aaron at the airport and headed over to the helipad. I had my bags packed in case it became a reality. Sean Dog was there saying goodbye to the heli pilot Mike who flew us around the day before. I mentioned that Colin said maybe I could catch a ride back to town and save the hundred bucks on the puddle jumper. He asked if I was ready and I hopped aboard. I gave my hotel and rental car keys to Sean Dog who said he would check me out. He exclaimed "ROCK STAR EXIT" as I was boarding and that would be the last I would see of Haines, AK. Thanks Colin, I owe you man!
