Where's Nate?

living large in the four-oh-eight. wicked large.


bring a parka.

Apparently June 10th was the deadline for incoming Ross MBA1s to sign up for the M-Trek of their choice. M-Trek is Michigan's version of MOO (Middlebury Outdoor Orientation) which is Middlebury's version of Dartmouth's Outward Bound-remix. In other words, it's a handful of incoming students, a couple of second-year leaders, a full tank of gas, and half a pack of cigarettes. And we're wearing sunglasses.

Hit it.

The reason why I'm interested in this is because I'm leading a trip ("The Grapes of Raft") with my buddies Dirty, J-Mac, and BJ. Ummm, I mean Jess, Jennie, and Ben.

While many of the trips offer an international itinerary, they also offer a high price tag. So we decided to plan a trip in Northern California (surprise). Trips are also divided into Laid Back, Moderate, and Kick-Your-Ass-Tough. We're laid back people. So we picked the lazy option.

I'll spare the details of the trip because you can read them online. But suffice it to say, we'll be drinking lots of wine, eating tons of oysters, and capsizing one or two rafts. After all, we have to get these incoming students primed, right?

    That trip sounds awesome! Can I go? I promise to pretend I'm a b school dork, by practicing and using words like p hat, revenue recognition, and channel management.

    Thanks for the great publicity, Nate. We're so excited to find out about our trekkers later this week. If there are Ross Class of 2008 readers out there... we can't wait to meet you and hope to see you in NoCal!
