I have been invited to work with a tour company called Rainbow Glacier Tours. Yes! That is.....as long as I can get myself licensed with a Commercial Drivers License (CDL) by the time cruise ships start coming up the inside passage of Southeast Alaska (mid May). The owner has offered me a position as the Porcupine Creek Gold Rush Tour Guide....I’ll be the Gold Girl! I will get to take tourist out to Porcupine Creek and pan for gold at the Schnabel’s Big Nugget Gold Mine.

My dream is to be a Tour Guide in Haines Alaska. I'm not one yet. I used to be a Tour Director for a Cruise Line a few years back, but Tour Guiding is different ball of wax. A Tour Director doesn't say all the commentary, the Tour Guide does. The Director is like a traveling concierge. I counted suitcases every morning before departure. I took care of the ill, told jokes and kept the tourists happy. It was an excellent job;
