Weekly High-Five Report: Check out these awesome videos


Amy Christenson over at Expand Outdoors shared this great Ira Glass story about the challenge of getting through mediocrity. She calls it Wisdom for Beginners, and I love her attitude. It’s okay not to excel at first. In fact it’s part of the process. According to Ira, one must get through loads of really bad first drafts (or days on the beginner slopes, or falling on your mountain bike) before you can find success. High-five Ira and high-five Amy for sharing this!

According to Mountain Magazine, this next video is “a little slice of awesome”, detailing a helicopter rescue on Mt. Rainier. I couldn’t agree more. High-five to this steady pilot. Impressive indeed.

  2. Yes, impressive indeed! I watched a Chinook just like that when I was camped at the Lunch Counter, aobut 9,000 feet up the south side of Mount Adams, before we summited. It was actually below us. My mom heard about a helicopter rescue on Adams on the news and was quite worried! That was before smart phones, etc. so no cool footage. Anyway, great footage!

You people are amazing. Thanks for commenting.
