Alaska Again

Well, I am supposed to be in Anchorage tonight (5/8); however, I am stuck in some random hotel near Salt Lake City airport. My first flight was delayed so I missed the connecting flight to Anchorage, and won’t arrive there until tomorrow afternoon (5/9).

I really love Alaska and I guess that is why I visit Alaska three summers in a roll. This time I am going to stay for another 34 days. Friends asked me, “Are you going to try Denali again?” Of course I want to; however, not this summer. What I am going to do is also something as exciting if not more exciting than Denali. I am taking the NOLS Alaska Instructor Course, which means if I successfully complete the course, I will be a NOLS instructor. Maybe I will start teaching wilderness courses, but hopefully I can teach technical courses very soon!

That being said, my blog is going to be quiet for a while. (I did put a couple articles in the queue though). Don’t forget me and give me some of your best wishes!

  1. Your blog is quiet for quite a while already! 🙂
    But, have fun and enjoy the wonderful nature in Alaska! Looking forward to your story when you come back! 🙂

  2. I did not have a chance to visit you for a while and am glad to catch up on the latest happenings. I read about your accident at Red Rock and your instructors’ comments. To me, climbing is like riding a bike, eventually one is going to take a spill. Mine was a 35 feet lead fall. While I did not get hurt, my nerves were shot and my poor second had to finish leading the last pitch of the 5.9 climb!!! My lesson learnt is a quote from Royal Robin: “Those who overestimate themselves will find the ground come up too fast !!” Hope you are enjoying your trip to Alaska and got you instructor certificate. Take Care !!!
