The Competition

Matthew giving a cart talk about predators and prey

Matthew Moore here. As many of my co-workers know, Jacob Marshall and I are having a little competition. The goal is to see how many people we can get to come visit our cart talks. So far (sadly) Jacob been beating me most days, but I have the record! Oh yeah! And to get it I had to beat Jacob's old record of 114 in an hour and I got 118! It's been pretty fun talking to all these people. They have so many stories to tell about Alaska and about where they're from. It seems that a lot of people look up to Alaska (both figuratively and literally) as a place to experience wonder and amazement, and to see things that they probably will never see again.

That's all for now,
