Today is my last day in the lower 48 for the next couple of months. Tomorrow I fly North to Anchorage and get the pleasure of hanging out with Ian and Mary Virginia and of course the new addition to the family, Atticus! I'm excited to not only see family but also to be back in Alaska for whats shaping up to be a great season.
On Saturday (4/18) Dan, Brian and myself are schudled to fly into the Alaska range to run a 12 day mountaineering seminar for the ever popular AMS. This should be an excellent adventure and learning experience for everyone. After the 12 day seminar there will be 5 days of down time to enjoy all that a Talkeetna spring has to offer. Then back into the range for another shot at the West Buttress with Todd, Ken and Carlos. This year should be even better than last years attempt. We have all been training hard and everyone is really excited for this second opportunity.
Thats all for now. Should have more stories and photos in early May and again in early June.
