More On Ryan Pelizzoni (CHS 2003)
I noticed your article on the Pelizzoni Mountain Climbers and wondered if you would like more info on Ryan. He now works in Seward, Alaska for Exit Glacier Guides ( He and his father have summited on Kilimanjaro, been to Base Camp on Mt. Everest and then over to summit Lobuche. He often encounters a bear on his guided tours up to Exit Glacier and I have a picture of him with the bear. Also he and two of the other guides crossed the Harding Ice Field from Seward to Homer. You can read about that at and scroll down to June 4, 2009 article titled Adventures across an ice field.

Proud Mother of Ryan,
Donna Brumley (6/28/2009)
Ryan is in the orange shirt in this July 2008 black bear encounter (per his mother in this submitted photo).
2009 Harding Icefield Crossing (L-R): Ryan Fisher (co-owner of Exit Glacier Guides), Ryan Pelizzoni, and Dan Schieffelin (another guide and the one who wrote the Adventures Across an Icefield article).
Also, if you go to photobucket (where they posted photos of the crossing), when they speak of Ryan it is Ryan Fisher and needless to say Pzone is Ryan Pelizzoni.

Adventures Across An Ice Field -- June 4, 2009

Great American Road Trip
I'm not a big fan of the reality shows but will at least try to check out a new one on NBC as I recognized the mystery RVs that passed through Collinsville May 26th on an NBC TV promo Sunday. -- Ted 6/29/2009
Trying To Stay Cool
I asked for photos of how folks are staying cool during the recent 100 degrees days ... and received this one Saturday (June 27, 2009) which I beleive is Marysa Trost using wet towels to stay "cool" at a softball tournament. -- Ted

The trip from Seward to Homer is "about 80 miles as the crow flies but about 90 miles" on the path followed by Pelizzoni and his pals on their 7 day trek over the Harding Icefield.
