    Default All's well, just stepping away from the guiding.

    That's right, for over twenty years I guided wilderness outings and instructed wilderness skills. As of December 31, 2014 I'll be done and become just another one of the guys enjoying the outdoors. I've had a tremendous time but I'm now focusing on other things. Of course I'll still check in here when I can, maybe even more often than I've been able to over the recent past. I want to thank everyone that has supported me over the years, your referrals helped my business greatly. The forum has also been a great source of information and feedback, thank you all!

    I'll keep in touch.

    Oh Phil, bet that is a bittersweet decision. So, can you tell us about your new ventures?
    Why do I live in Alaska? Because I can.

    Over twenty years? I'd say that was a good run!
    Good luck in your future endeavors!

    I'm not committed to any new job yet, tossing around a few options. My plans will always include time to get out and enjoy the outdoors. Of course I'll keep checking in here, I would actually miss all of you. I'll keep you updated.
