Hey Again,

Just finished my two weeks of theoretical training with Alaska Crossings, which is awesome! I loved what we were learning, but sitting and listening fourty hours a week can be exhausting. This week coming up I will be doing a three day flat water canoeing course, which will be awesome. I am looking forward to working on my awesome paddling skills. I have been out canoeing a couple of times while in Wrangell to work on my strokes and so far it has been fun.  I bought one straight shaft paddle and Crossings gave each new guide an Ottertail paddle which I need to sand and varnish. After the flat water canoeing course, I will have Thursday off to prep for the seven day ocean trip. I am totally looking forward to the ocean trip. The trip will be pretty cold and wet, but it will be nice exploring different islands in and around Alaska. I will also be looking forward to putting to use those classroom teachings into the field.

Have a beautiful day!

I thought I would list all of the amazing seafood I have had so far living here. The seafood here is to die for! The locals here have so much seafood that they will give it away easily. For example, a friend of mine received pounds of cooked shrimp from a local just because she had extras. The idea of giving is a simply a normal occurrence here in Wrangell.

Overall, life has been good since I have been here. I am building a nice, solid community here with both the locals and the other guides. I just finished my first week of training and it was great! I am learning a lot and will continue to be learning for a long time, which is awesome! I will be doing another week of lecture training and then a three day canoeing course. Finally, I will be doing a seven day ocean trip.

All right that is a quick update. Hope to hear from you guys soon too.
