Well, yesterday we learned that we were not selected for the Travelocity Travel for Good grant. We were really encouraged by all of your support and are disappointed that we do not have this opportunity to volunteer in Alaska and share our stories.
So what now?
We are open to possibilities and welcome your suggestions.
We are open between August 12th and September 10th. Anyone know of a great volunteer opportunity in the Western U.S. or Canada (or overseas with a way to get there cheaply?)
Things we might do:
Look for donated airfare or grants to get to Alaska anyways
Do another trip with Bob Marshall Wilderness in Montana
Take more time to explore the Pacific Northwest, volunteering for one time gigs along the way
Try to find paid summer work that would let us extend the trip
