First Public Slideshow on Shifting Ice and Changing Tides!

A week from today, I’ll be giving the first public slide show on the Shifting Ice and Changing Tides expedition from last April. In case you haven’t been an avid reader of this blog, the show will cover the expedition of an all-female team via sailboat to ski first descents in Iceland and Greenland! I was a member of the team and worked on the project for over a year before setting sail last April! The trip was amazing and I hope to bring you along with the slide show!

Just a teaser to get you excited! See more amazing photos like these next Friday!

We made it!

The Shifting Ice and Changing Tides crew is home safe after a very successful expedition to Iceland and Greenland. I cannot thank everyone enough for their support. It sure helped pull us through the tough days and make us extremely grateful for the great days!

Special thanks to my newest sponsor Moonlight Skis for providing me the most lightweight setup that still performed well in a huge variety of conditions! Check them out!

Help Fund Shifting Ice + Changing Tides!

When we won the Polartec Challenge Grant last year for our All-Female Sail and Ski from Iceland to Greenland, we thought the rest of the funding would fall in line with some hard work. We’ve applied for 10 grants, sent sponsorship proposals to a lot of companies, and experienced about a 15% success rate. Getting told “No” that often can be discouraging, but we really had no choice but to keep on asking and plugging along. After all, we were dedicated to doing the trip. We already had some great partners on board and we already put our deposit on the boat!


Now we are asking you! Our friends, family, supporters, blog readers, etc, to help us fund the remainder of the trip cost. If we can reach our goal of $20,000, we can actually pay our photographer and produce an amazing final product! We can also pay off the credit card we took out to pay for the sailboat charter! So help us! Even if 85% of you say no, we can reach our goal! But say yes, and I’ll be this happy!
