In just a few short days, I will head north to Alaska, ultimately ending up back in the Brooks Range. Unfortunately, at this time I will not be attempting my Brooks Range Odyssey. Since last summer, my intention was to make another attempt this upcoming summer, but that will have to wait for another year. A few months ago, I accepted a position as a guide in Coldfoot. I will be spending the duration of my summer working there. In my off time, I intend to examine and push my limits on backpacking and packrafting trips. I see these trips as training for the Brooks Range Odyssey, as well as the Alaska Mountain Wilderness Classic, which is very high on my list of things to do. In the mean time, keep your eyes peeled! I intend to post updates here from time to time on life in the arctic.
