The way is how ever you get there

The way is how ever you get there

It is time again for a new chapter from Eric Oravsky: Juneau, Alaska — My computer is dying. Money is scarce. And I haven’t had an address to call home for a month now. It’s been tough, and it’s been exhilarating. I’ve been out tackling glaciers, leaping over mountains, chasing whales, and running with the bears. But the trails here are different. They are the best kinds of trails. Like the stories where you get to chose your own ending. They start, and split, and disappear. Some where once part of mining or lumber. Some are maintained at the start while others aren’t maintained at all. Some contain warnings while others encourage you towards the danger. One thing is certain up here though, there are more trails than roads. And where the trails end, there is a seemingly endless terrain to occupy even extraordinary amounts of time. As I run over these mountains, through the streams and over the ice I hope to show just a little bit of this land and it’s secrets. As I take the trails beyond the broken bridges, under the vanishing glaciers, and over the icy waters in search of what will make this next adventure.

  1. Eric, thank you for a great day whale watching and the nature walk to the Mendenhall Glacier. We were both impressed with your humour and knowledge of Alaska, whales, plants and the area of our tour. The time we spent with you was a highlight of our Alaskan cruise.

  2. Eric,
    Thank you so much for making one of my dreams come true!! Being able to see the ice caves is one if not the best highlight of our Alaskan trip and of all the places I’ve been to so far!! So thank you for your patience,knowledge and professionalism! I hope in some way you will know how much our tour meant to me! I hope to see you again in the near future,maybe Antarctica? Best wishes and good luck to your new and future ventures in life..

    1. Glad to hear you had such a wonderful time! You made it just in time. We had to close down the tours later in the summer, and by the end of the summer the front end of the cave collapsed. I guess I will be exploring Juneau for new Ice caves to explore. This winter/Austral summer will probably be my last for a while in Antarctica, but perhaps someday My new tour company will expand southward. Maybe we’ll see you again for hot springs? Volcanos? Who knows! Keep adventuring. 😉
