When I waltzed out of the woods on June 7th, I had absolutely no idea what the next month of my life would look like. Would I be offered a contract with NOLS? Would I be kayaking up on Lake Superior? Would I be guiding for a different company? A lot of my future was up in the air. At this point, I should be used to that right? Sort of.
I ended up heading back to Wisconsin to see family, do some writing, and commune with Lake Superior. Even after seeing much of the United States that lake still has a significant hold on my spirit.
Less than a month later, things seem a little less uncertain. Or maybe I have just pushed the uncertainty back by a month… On June 30th, I will be headed back into the Wind Rivers Mountains to instruct a group of 16-17 year olds on a NOLS course. Basically, my decade long dream has become a reality. It is WAY exciting.
I’ll be out of contact for almost the entire month of July, but keep an eye out for occasional posts from Chasing Cairns. Big things are coming!
