We may have connected on Linked In or Twitter or Face Book, or all these places. I may have found you years ago or just today. What I have learned here online, is people count. Everyone, in all the different adventures that our lives offer us, count to each other.
I thought I thought I would touch base and let you know that we would love to share more of Chisana (and ourselves) with you. I hope you will take the time to visit our website, http://pioneeroutfitters.com and check out how great your Adventure could be.
For more years than I have been with Pioneer Outfitters there has been talks around the table, sprawled around the Lodge and even around campfires of sharing Chisana with folks during the Summer and Fall months on the subject of the Horseback Adventures.
We are doing it!
There are so many folks that are looking for something different, for a family vacation or a true "getaway."
Pioneer Outfitters will guide you through the wilderness on horseback of the Nation's largest National Park... The Wrangell St. Elias National Park and Preserve in Alaska. It is as close as you can get to the Last Frontier.
We are offering trips to the Historic Gold Mines where you can try your skill and luck, Cross Country Pack Trips for the more Adventurous folks, shorter destination planned Pack Trips to explore the glaciers that surround us and enjoy the wildlife that roams freely as well as Horseback & Fishing Adventures that will share with you and yours just how magnificent this untouched country truly is.
There are still openings for this Summer and Fall, and we would love to have YOU share it all with us. We are now also accepting reservations for 2014!
The new, longer Big Game Hunting trips that Master Guide Terry Overly initiated last Summer were and continue to be exactly what more people are looking for. They take the pressure off so that every aspect of your Alaska Adventure is enjoyable for you.
The biggest change has been the clients. Instead of 1-2 Hunters, pals, brothers, father and sons, what we have now are families. Entire families included in Dad's Adventure. It has been wonderful for us all and hope you keep that in mind as well.
~I hope we will get the opportunity to ride together and wish you the best and safest adventures in your future.
Stay in Touch and Safe Adventures Sincerely, Amber-Lee Dibble P.S. If you would like to know more about us,
