  • This July I took a trip to the Last Frontier: Alaska.  Now this trip was not a vacation or a trip of business.  Instead I went to Alaska to volunteer at a summer camp for children who are visually impaired or blind, Camp Abilities Alaska.  I had met the director of the camp at a similar program...
