"Oh! An Alaskan Cruise! I've always wanted to go on one of those...I hear the whales and the night sky in Alaska are..(blah blah blah)" -every person's response to hearing where we are traveling.
But there is no fru-fru cruise to whale watch, we should be able to do that on the half-day middle of nowhere kayak adventure. And instead of some girly day hikes, the 7 of us will be partaking in day long brutal climbs, catch your dinner fishing trip, DOG SLEDDING ON A GLACIER(!!!), kayaking and white water rafting in the Denali Forest. Have you met my parents?!? This is so typical of their active lifestyle and they've certainly instilled this trait within their children.
Camp Kernion: Alaska is going to be one for the books. A few motivating mantras to myself to keep my eye on the prize. Daily reminders that whatever your goal is in life or in health, to dig deep and remember you have the power to change it all.
