By JON MOOALLEM MARCH 20, 2019 A weeklong trip in Alaska was supposed to be an adventure. In an instant it became the experience that defined us all. The Voyages Issue Rick Steves Wants to Save the World, One Vacation at a Time It Was Just a Kayaking Trip. Until It Upended Our Lives. There Is No Reason to Cross the U.S. by Train. But I Did It Anyway. The Voyages Issue A weeklong trip in Alaska was supposed to be an adventure. In an instant it became the experience that defined us all. By JON MOOALLEM photo illustration by: DAVID BENJAMIN SHERRY The whale sighting happened right away, minutes into Day 1. Jon, Dave and I had just been dropped off on a remote Alaskan shoreline, an hour and a half by boat from the closest speck of a town. Jon was working as a sea-kayaking guide that summer in Glacier Bay National Park, and he had invited us up for a seven-day excursion during his week off. As the boat that delivered us vanished, the drone of its … [Read more...] about It Was Just a Kayaking Trip. Until It Upended Our Lives.
By Rachel Levin The New York Times Wed., Feb. 6, 2019 When Cassie Dippo’s family moved from the City of New York to the slopes of Alta, Utah, in 1965, she was 9 years old. The snow was dry and white and famously light and often so deep it reached well past her (and her father’s) waist. There were four chairlifts. Lift tickets were $4.50 (U.S.).

All of which, a lifetime later, have remained essentially the same, in esthetic and spirit and “modified American” meal plans. “Honestly, not much has changed here since I was a kid,” said Dippo, now 63, who remains an owner of the TV-free Alta Lodge, her family’s property.

Lynn Henning The Detroit News Published 11:28 PM EST Jan 31, 2019 The first day on the job as a full-time journalist and sports writer was Aug. 5, 1974, a hot, bright Monday morning, three days before President Richard Nixon resigned, and with a 7 a.m. start at the Battle Creek Enquirer. A guy two months after grabbing his journalism degree from Michigan State had secured that most aspired of all prizes: a job at a daily newspaper. I walked into the office and joined my two sports-staff partners, Dick Lovell and sports editor Bill Frank. My first task: write a cutline (photo caption) for an Associated Press photo of Jack Nicklaus from the Pleasant Valley Classic's final round. Four decades and many million words later, it ends, formally anyway, today at The Detroit News, a wondrous employer for nearly all of the past 40 years. There have been moments and minutes so magical, and so frequent, as to defy any orderly account. But here goes on … [Read more...] about Henning: 45 years covering sports provide endless memories
