Hey Folks,

So now the “season” has officially ended, I want to thank everyone that came out this year for such a fun summer/fall. It’s always a treat to see familiar faces, those who’ve returned yet again for another Expeditions Alaska trip, thank you. And for all those who took their first trip with us this year, thanks so much, and I sincerely hope you had a great time here. Thank you.

So now, it’s time for me to take off and explore some more. I’m taking 4 weeks to join up with Erin and Hig, of Ground Truth Trekking, for part of their ‘Life On Ice’ adventure, down around the Malaspina Glacier and the Lost Coast of Wrangell – St. Elias National Park, a little travelled part of the world for sure. I’m super excited about this trip,  for a number of reasons, one is simply to spend a month in the backcountry. I’m also stoked to join up with Erin and Hig, great people with a wealth of experience and wisdom to learn from. That’ll be a great experience.

Take a look at their site, and the links above. You might also want to follow their adventures on Twitter, as they post reasonably often. I won’t be posting until I get back; but you can get a glimpse of how things are going via their tweets. It promises to be a fantastic trip, and a wonderful place. I’ve only spent a brief time near the area before, so it will be fun to really explore a bit here.

In the meantime, I hope you all have a great fall, and I’ll try to follow up when I get back with a full trip report for you all, photos and all. 🙂

Thanks folks,
