Postcard Picture

Posted on May 2, 2008 at 2:01am 0 Comments

I received a postcard in the mail yesterday. It was a picture taken of Summit Lake. Granted, the entire picture resembles a serene watercolor of white and blue, washing together, with hints of spring on the way. You can't see the lake, it's completely covered by snow. You can't see the lodge either. But in some way, it's nice to get a "glimpse" of what will be home for the next four months. I put it on my fridge, to remind me for the next two weeks that this will all be worth it.

Hi I saw your post about ride sharing. I live South of you in Mammoth and will be heading to Alaska and returning about the same time. If you are interested in ride sharing hit me up and we can maybe discuss details on the phone or somthing. Im a very laid back guy, all about camping and saving money.

I have less than 24 hours to go! And here I am, on the computer...I think I'm done picking up all the last minute necessities, until I get to Anchorage that is! Will need to do some grocery shopping, which only adds to the amount of stuff I have! If only I wasn't bringing all my climbing gear, but alas, it's what keeps me going, and I would feel lost without it....speaking of which, just bought 6 new quickdraws..anyone want to help break them in??? Off to go reorganize once again, so my stuff will be allowed on the plane....suitcase is 60 lb and backpack is only 30 lb, so I need to even them out, so I don't have to pay. Unfortunately, this means that all my stuff will be completely disorganized, until I get to the hostel, and reorganize it to how I originally wanted it packed! Off I more procrastinating, the plane won't wait for me......

I am getting into Anchorage late Thursday night. I will be staying at the same hostel as you, so lets plan on doing something before my shuttle leaves around 3:30! It'll be nice to know someone there.

Most likely i will be in either california and arizona. I plan on doing that ACE volunteer thing out there; either starting in june or july. And it runs 12 weeks. Plus I plan on roadtripping back eaSt, so, i'm pretty wide open in driving anywhere to do it.

now i'll just have to work on buying the stuff

I've never done it, but would be really interested in learning, so I really wouldn't want to slow you down haha.

Unless you(anyone else who joins) cares to be slowed down some by a beginner

I am only staying in Anchorage the night of the 15th and the next day I am taking the shuttle down to Cooper Landing. Where are you staying in Anchorage? I haven't booked a hostel yet or anything. We should definitely plan on meeting up!

Hi! so you're headed up to cooper landing too I see. When are you leaving?

P.s. I saw you're topic on the cooper landing group page and decided if I owned a harness and climbing shoes I would definitely join you in the fun, but I do not. I would looove to try it though.

Hey Nicholle, hows the planning and packing going? We got a foot of snow dumped on us today! It is beautiful with all the snow, but hard to work outside in it! Your lodge opens this weekend and we are gonna go up and have dinner, I will take some pictures for you if you want. Hope all is well with you, see you soon!
