Guiding

Travel to Utah

I left the AMGA conference around 10:30 a.m. MST on the 15th of November. Lindsay, Chris Werner, and I headed east to North Carolina. I had made arrangements to get Chris back to Boone, NC before I realized I had to be in Utah on the 17th of November. We drove straight through and got to Brevard, NC at 12:15 a.m. on November 17th. I got a few hours rest and then got up to unpack ice and alpine gear, do laundry, and repack an Indian Creek rack! I got to the Asheville airport and was on the plane by 4:30 p.m.

Days like this are becoming more and more common with my career. I am always planning for a couple trips, unpacking for one trip, packing for another, contacting clients about what they need for their trip a few months out or even for the next week. Today I have unpacked from the CO trip, packed and left for the Utah trip, emailed clients for a trip over Thanksgiving, contacted my mother to try to arrange a ski trip between to trips in the Sierra, started writing a needed gear list for the FMG Aconcagua trip, and tried to nail down the itinerary for the winter mountaineering course in New Hampshire. This job is a ton of work….

 

…and I wouldn’t trade it for anything!

Diligently working away on the plane to Utah.
