Tomorrow I leave for a week long trip with First Descents. First Descents provides life-changing outdoor adventures for young adults (age 18-39) impacted by cancer. The program that I have selected to participate in is their surf camp in Santa Cruz CA. I am REALLY excited to go. I hope that I will meet some great people and make lifelong connections. In the event that this doesn't happen, who cares - I'M GOING TO SURF CAMP IN CALIFORNIA FOR A WEEK! They hire a real deal local outfitter to work with us and I'll be staying in a converted lighthouse right on the coast. 

I'm thankful that my family can get by without me, and grateful that we will all miss each other tremendously. I may have a chance to post updates throughout the week. If I am unable, I'll be sure to provide the full report upon my return!

    That is fantastic! Sounds very similar to what Knight's Cabin dies here in The Bow Valley. Great work! Incredible people! Can't wait to hear about it. Have a blast.
