General Membership Meeting

Tuesday, October 7, 2014 - 18:45

Meeting starts at 6:45 pm. The location of our monthly General Membership meeting is the Marriott Suites in Old Town Scottsdale. The Marriott is located immediately east of Scottsdale Road at 7325 East Third Avenue, just one block north of Indian School Road. Join Jeff Babcock who will share trail experiences none of us ever hope to encounter. When he and his brother climbed Mount McKinley 47 years ago they discovered three frozen corpses. It never occurred that one day his brother might not return from a future comparable adventure -- this time in Canyonlands National Park. Learn how they joined with a former Alaskan buddy on a 10 day trek in Canyonlands National Park, neither one of whom ever thought they would come close to reaching the end of the trail. And he's not talking about the Salt Creek Canyon Trail upon which they were traveling… he's talking about the trail that each of us must travel down --- the one that will eventually stop ticking--- when our time runs out! What would you do in a similar situation? How would you react? Coupled with some phenomenal slides, this is one presentation you definitely don't want to miss.
