Site Update Notifications and Expedition Dispatches

This is home for site notifications and dispatches from Alan's expeditions plus updates on Memories are Everything Alzheimer's fund raising activities. Alzheimer's is a devastating disease and the true cause of the disease is unknown. Researchers are making great progress but more is needed. And there is hope.

I have partnered with the Alzheimer's Association, the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research. Their mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.

100% of your donations go directly to Alzheimer's issues. None go to Alan's climbing expenses. I encourage you to read more about this excellent organization and make your tax deductible donation today.

Hurry Up and Wait...

The theme of climbing. We are still in Talkeetna waiting for low clouds over the glacier to clear. While it is sunny here and also high up on Denali, the Turbo-Props can't land in poor visibility on the glacier landing strip. So we are hanging out, reviewing some basic skills in knots, rope work and crevase rescue.

We hope that the afternoon sun will clear out the clouds thus allowing flights. There are teams on the glacier waiting to get out so if I had my choice for a delay, I'll take it here in town!

Climb On!
