Here’s my itinerary for tomorrow — 15.5 hours to the top of the world

I’m still packing my bags and heavy clothing but wanted to take a
moment to share my itinerary for tomorrow with you:

Alaska Airlines 1
Departs: Wash DC-Reagan, Sat, 02/28 08:00 AM
Arrives: Seattle, Sat, 02/28 10:49 AM

Alaska Airlines 95

Barrow, Alaska is the northernmost settlement in North America,
more than 300 miles above the Arctic Circle. On Monday morning
(March 2), around 7am Alaska time (11am Eastern Time) I’ll be a
guest on the morning show on KBRW-AM/FM in Barrow. You can tune in
on their live stream here:

I’ll be then spending most of the day with 4th graders at Ipalook
Elementary School (see: Later
that evening, I’ll speak to the entire Barrow community in a
special evening event.

It looks like temperatures will be well above normal during my
visit…high tomorrow of 5 F with a wind chill of -20 F. Yikes.

After Barrow, I’ll be heading to Juneau to speak to students at
Juneau Douglas High School. See:

This will be my third visit to Alaska, an incredibly beautiful,
magical place rich with wildlife and history. I look forward to
spending time with the students there, teaching them about the
oceans, but I know I’ll be learning plenty from them as well. Their
perspectives will no doubt be fascinating.

My first visit to Wisconsin last week was wonderful, thanks
especially to teacher Stephen Schmidt of Newman Catholic High
School in Wausau. For those of you who tried to tune in to last
Thursday to hear me on Wisconsin Public Radio, my apologies! Turns
out the show was not live-streamed that afternoon. The good news is
that the show was archived and you can hear it now:

Wisconsin Public Radio: Glen Moberg’s “Route 51″show.
