A journalist observes life in the far north.

Goodbye 2008, hello 2009

coldI took this picture of Alec and Jade on the way home from a New Year’s Eve party. We had to leave early because Jade started having meltdowns after the clock passed 9 p.m.

Alec is wearing the down suit that he will take to Mt. Everest in the spring. If he gets a chance to summit the mountain, he’ll wear this red suit. The butt zips off like a union suit.

Last night, we booked our tickets to Kathmandu. We’ll go through San Francisco, Singapore and Seoul on the way. We tried for Bangkok or Hong Kong, but we couldn’t make it work. The guiding service wants a resume documenting my back country experience. It’s pretty slim, consisting mostly of some hiking and some interviewing of people about their back country experience and writing about it. I guess I’ll have to jazz it up a bit.
