(SitNews) Klawock, Alaska – For the past eleven years my buddy Chris and I have told fishing, hiking and camping stories but had only outdoored together a handful of times.
He had to wake up at 4 a.m. to catch his flight out of Sacramento, so I figured he needed something to keep him from falling asleep. I picked him up from the airport and we immediately went up One Duck, a 1,100 foot climb in just over an mile. He’s a fellow half marathon runner, so we were up and down in 1/3 of the recommended time.So when he came up to Alaska for a week, I knew it wouldn’t be about talking. It would be about action.
Once back to my house we wrapped five dozen shrimp if bacon, slathered it all in BBQ sauce, and hit golf balls at a life ring 30 yards from shore until eleven.
It was a pretty good first day, so I decided to keep things rolling.
