Sam Larson, Congrats On Winning Alone! Another Amazing Jack Mountain Alum!

From time to time I mention our amazing alumni. Tonight I want to say congratulations to Sam Larson for winning Alone, season 5 in Mongolia! You’re an inspiration for the young and young at heart everywhere!

If you don’t know Sam, he runs Woodsong Wilderness Outfitters, has a great sense of humor, and is now a big-time celebrity. He’ll be running a course at our field school in October, and has written a great book called To Tread In Wild Places that you should order a copy of. You can order it here.

We’re all proud of you Sam, for what you’ve done and what you’re doing! And let me apologize in advance for continuing to use that old picture of you, but it’s the best I’ve got.

    Thank you for the opportunity to purchase this book, my wife and I are fans of Sam and the show Alone. Sam is a natural teacher and that was apparent in how he shared many teaching moments on the show. Looking forward to seeing great things from this young man.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
