Standing your ground does not always work as we were about to find out. We had a ride arranged by the women at the hotel desk to the Skidegate ferry, about 15 kilometres away, which departed at 12:30. It was now 12:05 and looking iffy because, even though we were adjusting to the easy going island pace, it was difficult for me to tell the driver to take a hike. He wanted $60 for that little hop because he knew he had a captive audience. I wasn't sure what we were going to do, I just knew I wasn't going to pay $60 to do it.
