In January of 2011, still recovering from my last Ischemic stroke in 2010, Alaska Chick’s Blog was born. 2011 was as enlightening as it was a blessing in too many ways to mention, while learning what was needed to bring Pioneer Outfitters to the world and how to navigate the internet and Social Media universe. 2012 was a year of learning and incredible experiences.
2013 was absolutely and amazingly clear with the message it had for the entire Pioneer Outfitters Team, throughout its challenges, successes and disasters. The message? Everything we do as people, throughout our lives that really lasts is rooted in Love. In business, in our personal lives and in our professional lives, the lessons we truly take from the rigors of life are rooted, learned and passed on; are all products of or are based on a passion in the heart.
2014 is The Year of the Horse.
The message couldn’t be any clearer for us here at Pioneer Outfitters and on Alaska Chick’s Blog. The horse is as important to Pioneer Outfitters as the warmth from the wood cut all year long to keep us warm in the long and immensely cold Alaskan winters.
Fear is an emotion induced by a perceived threat, which causes entities to quickly pull far away from it and usually hide.
Hide? We will not hide! We will be the hunters and we will be the leaders. We are the leaders that serve and protect the ones following. As Professional Guides, some of that is as natural as the air we breathe. As Leaders we will be aligning ourselves with others who feel as we do that there is much to be explored, pioneered and shared with the world in 2014.
“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.” ~Joseph Campbell
It is The Year of the Horse! It is Pioneer Outfitters 90th Anniversary and it is going to be a FEARLESS year! We all hope YOU will be part of it and our Team.
“When a resolute young fellow steps up to the great bully, the world, and takes him boldly by the beard, he is often surprised to find it comes off in his hand, and that it was only tied on to scare away the timid adventurers.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.”
~ Bertrand Russell
