    Dave Govatski was also first to redline all of the trails in the White Mountain Guidebook, completing way back in 1997.

    Sorry that I will miss his talk, but hoping that he will presenting it again.

    Dr. Dasy,

    I knew that and was assuming most of us here did too, but your post reminds me some may not. He did a program for us last year, as well, and he was in attendance for a lichen program this fall. We are very lucky to have him come and present!

    ANWR is a magical (but over-mythologized) place, in my favorite range. Should be a good presentation.

    I'm sorry to be missing this as well. I am currently reading "Being Caribou" by Karsten Heuer, and would really like to learn/see more about ANWR.

    Hopefully someone here can make it and will have a "Trip Report" to share.

    Una Dogger reminded me to give a recommendation for another great Alaskan arctic novel.

    Ordinary Wolves by Seth Kantner. It's a generational book that defines modern Alaska as well as London or Service ever did 100 years ago.

    But back to the presentation ---- You all should come! Play hooky, leave the kids alone, let your husband or wife deal with dinner, whatever, just come to Dave's program. You'll thank yourself later.
