Allow me to introduce myself to those who’ve just stumbled across my blog (please watch your step!). My name is Michelle Tepper. I’m an avid adventurist who works as an Emergency Department Physician Assistant to pay the bills and for a little extra REI spending money. I’ve quit my job, packed most all of my stuff up and put it in storage, rented out my house, dropped off my dog at my friend’s house (shed a few tears in the process), and gathered all my wool long underwear and socks, a couple pairs of gloves, balaclavas and a puffy coat or two and I’m off to the frigid tundra down under. Follow my journey to the end of the world!
