last summer i did a 30 day mountaineering course in Wyoming...it was without a doubt the greatest experience of my life, you're going to have an awesome time
"Dwight, you ignorant slut....."
i intend on doing this during my upcoming college career.
im jealous... im going to ecuador for a field archaeology program next summer hopefully!
doesn't matter if you get credits because chances are, you will only be able to use 3 of those credits towards graduating.
Peace Out. A-Town Down.
Where all in AK are you going? I live in Juneau, Alaska, the capital and its pretty dope up here.... PS: It may rain A LOT though....
good luck. i have a friend who did that trip, he said as exciting and new and crazy as it was, it was miserable. it rained every day and was not pleasant. a good friend of mine went to patagonia, and ended up being stranded for 4 days without food before their boat could come pick them up due to bad weather. i hope you are luckier

my friend did the most difficult backpacking one (no idea what it was). said it was the best thing he's ever done. have fun.
Along these lines, I just found out I got into the Outdoor Educators course for fall semester. Anyone else doing it?
