Juneau resident completes 80-day expedition in India

Posted: September 21, 2012 - 12:02am

Jake Pahlke, 21, of Juneau, recently completed an 80-day expedition in the Himalayan Mountains of India with the National Outdoor Leadership School, according to a release from the organization.

The expedition led Pahlke and other participants over mountains, down whitewater rapids and into the homes of host families living in small villages in rural India.

Along the way, Pahlke learned the importance of teamwork, how to survive in wilderness situations and much about the unique culture and landscape of the region.

For more on Pahlke’s experiences, check out next week’s Outdoor section on Friday, Sept. 28.
