Leo's First Update from Skagway, Alaska!


Greetings everyone,

I hope you are all having a wonderful start to your summer seasons; I know I am. In the short 4 days I have been in Alaska, I have been on two dog mushing trips, been on a ferry ride and seen humpback whales, dolphins and one killer whale, have moved into a great apartment with two roommates (both zipline guides as well) with a full kitchen and bathroom, have been exploring Juneau (2 days there), have been exploring Skagway (since Friday), been out hiking,  and have been meeting great coworkers and employees from other companies in Skagway.

Since arriving in Skagway, I found out that guides get to participate in all the guide activities for free in Skagway (they should tip fellow guides), which will make days off even more exciting and event filled  since I will be scenic rafting, horseback riding, dog sledding, helicopter riding, ziplining, in addition to hiking, camping, sightseeing, and exploring Alaska on days off. I also found out one of my zipline managers owns a paintball gun company, so I get to have a blast with paintball games this summer for free as well.

I hope you are all having the time of your life. I know my summer adventure is off to a great start. I am looking forward to starting work tomorrow, Monday, May 7, 2012 as a zipline guide. I will post more updates throughout the summer. I hope you will share your experiences at your locations both on this blog as well as on Cool Works.  Thank you for taking the time to read my update. Have a great day and an even better summer!

Hey Leo, my friend Derek is in Skagway as we speak as well. He's a driver for Holland America-Princess. It would be awesome if you met! LOL
