In the summer of 2013, I had the good fortune to be a member of the National Outdoor Leadership School’s Mega Semester in Alaska course.  Those 75 days drastically changed my life as I knew it.  No longer was I wandering aimlessly but I found a way to live my values and a life that I couldn’t imagine.  I graduated college in May 2014 and set off to complete the Brooks Range Odyssey.  I came nowhere near to achieving my plan, enduring many disheartening lessons instead.  In May of the following year, I departed for the Brooks Range once more.  Since then, I have made my home in Arctic Alaska, within the expansive and incredibly wild mountains of the far north in pursuit of a fulfilling, adventurous and holistic life.

Discussions and perspectives on lifestyle aspects of living in the Arctic can be found at my other blog: Arctic Essays

  1. God bless you, Jack! Wishing you a safe but challenging trek which fills you with joy and peace by bringing you closer to Our Creator. “Our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee.” We’ll be thinking of you and praying for you every day so know that on the discouraging days, your team at home is sending you love and encouragement and asking the Lord to give you what you need. Can’t wait to read your posts. Love the photo above — you look so handsome with that beard trim and haircut! Yes, I know you’ll get all shaggy but keep this look in mind for when you return to civilization! Love you, Aunt MaryClare
