117-Nerves Of Steel Or Jello?

117-Nerves Of Steel Or Jello? I think I could feel my heart pounding on the inner wall of my chest cavity.  It was requesting more blood, my brain meanwhile, requesting an escape plan for the moment and cycling a rolodex of questions for my experience to answer—Who is going to be on this adventure?  Will they be impressed or think this is stupid?  Are we ready?  Like, really ready?   One might think that we had somehow joined the majors

70-Beautiful Beautiful Valley Over the last several months you have been journeying with me as we hiked where Project Forty students have hiked, felt what they have felt and tasted the great outdoors in our imaginations as they have in reality last summer in BC. It’s been nearly a year since they began training to ascend an 8,000 foot mountain from sea level and some may wonder what is happening now? That’s a great question to have because it keeps
