Does any one have contacts in Skagway, who would be willing to let me mail my gear to them (6 large duffle bags), next Spring (2013) for a Yukon River trip?

Why Skagway? Postage to Alaska is about half the price, than mailing to Canada for Americans.
We have not yet done the upper lakes, nor have we done Lake Labarge, so I am planing on taking the train(hikers train) from Skagway to Bennet Lake, then paddle the upper lakes to to Whitehorse, then continue on to most likely the Dalton Highway Bridge.

I have already done the other major routes in to the upper Yukon, ie. South McMillian, Teslin, Big Salmon. A few years ago we paddled the Teslin(Johnson's Crossing) to Emmonak.

This summer we are doing the Kuskokwim, Rohn Road House to Bethel.

Thanks for any help you can give us.

Joel;
Let me check with an aquaintence I met a few years ago. He works up there summers. but would not want to give you contact info until I clear it with him.
BTW sitting here drinking a Yukon Red ale. Almost like being up there.
