Starting line of the Yukon Quest

The last ten days has been extremely busy for me. I’ve traveled from Costa Rica to the Canadian Yukon and then south again to El Salvador where I am writing this today.

Traveling from Central America to northern Canada in the Winter and back has to be the most jarring change in climate that I’ve experienced in all my travels. Nonetheless, I managed to handle the transition pretty well. I picked up cold weather gear in Texas that had been sitting at my manager Amy’s house since I got back from Antarctica. That plus the gear I was able to borrow in Whitehorse made the experience very doable.
