Part two of checking in on what our guides have been up to this winter... let's take a look at what Kat has been up to!
Now something you should know about Kat is that when she first moved to Alaska last summer, she got off the plane jobless, hitchhiked her way to Seward, found a job with Sunny Cove, and bought an old used mini van that she lived out of all summer long. So you could say she is a bit of a risk taker with an adventurous spirit which is why we love her and that same spirit has led her on some fantastic winter adventures.
Kat stuck around Alaska a bit to explore the Denali wilderness and catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. And then she said, its time to head somewhere warm again and took off to the Hawaiian Island of Kauai. Jobless and homeless once again, Kat was not deterred and within two weeks found a house, a car, and a job working with Kauai Backcountry Adventures. On top of that, Kat welcomed a new family member into her life. We call her Eva the dog because her name is Eva and well, she is a dog. Kat spent three months out in Hawai'i where she hiked the Napali Coast Trail before moving back to New Jersey to help plan her sister's wedding and is anxiously awaiting her return trip to Seward to be back on the water. She hopes to see you there!
