Hello from Jasper! July 28, 2007

Posted by jonpierson in Uncategorized.

Good news… The Arizona Daily Sun has written up a piece on my ride!  Read it at http://www.azdailysun.com/articles/2007/07/22/news/local/20070722_neighbors_37.txt

I am currently in Jasper, Alberta having a great time with 2 buddies from home.  So far we’ve driven the Icefields Parkway, and backpacked the Skyline Trail in Jasper.  Today we’re going rafting on the Frasier River in Mt Robson National Park.  Tomorrow we’ll rnt some bikes and hit the trails around Jasper.  We’ve been staying in hostels which are alot of fun.  Meeting people from around the world and sharing stories.. 

Thanks once again for the following the blog!  I appreciate the comments from the last post!  All the best, -Jon

I read the articles. WELL DONE. so what is your next adventure going to be? Are you planning to bike back to Flagstaff?

Hate missing your calls but appreciate hearing your voice. You have won the bet! Lizzy appreciates it much.

Please continue to be careful. My friend Gary told me that there has been an unusually high number of bears and cougars coming down into the populated area, and that a bicyclist was killed by a bear a few weeks ago. He says that the cougars are even more of a threat than the bears.

I hope you got my message that Gary is ill and won’t be able to meet you after all on Tuesday. It’s a disappointment to me, but I know you’ll do just fine.

Love, looking forward to seeing you next week at Ben’s wedding!

LOL, now you are showing up yet again on the NAU radar.

Cross-pollination, on the “Inside NAU” website, they have a section called “NAU in the News,” and now they have the link to your AZ Daily Sun story as a link titled:

NAU student’s great adventure almost over
Arizona Daily Sun, 7/22/2007

BTW, the story states your biggest pledge is “$15/mile” That’s over $40,000! Out of my league, LOL!

Even at 15 cents a mile, that over $400, very nice.

All of here in SBS are so proud of you! We’d like to have you make a (short) presentation about your adventures at the SBS Homecoming event, Oct 26. Are you willing? Please let me know: anne.buzzard@nau.edu
We’d like to acknowledge your efforts and maybe attendees would add to the scholarship.
