The Planning Begins
Let the serious planning begin. One Mukluk and 10 weeks of hardcore, back country winter bikepacking and exploration. First step, commit (check); second step, buy airline ticket (check); third step... Not sure, but I will figure it out.. Wohoo, here I come!!
It is a land that is frozen in time, and one that totally moved me to new heights a little more than 3 years ago. I have longed to go back, especially in the winter, and now the plan is in motion. The goal is simple: take the Mukluk, my winter bikepacking kit and my camera gear into this beautiful winter landscape and see the world in a different light; push myself across new boundaries; share with you a world of simple human powered adventure.
The last time I was in Alaska it was my arms that carried me there, clear up from Seattle to Glacier bay. This time, with the aid of a big silver bird, I will get dropped into civilization with my Mukluk and the power of two legs and a big heart, whereupon I will head out and explore the world that is Northern Alaska.
I will undoubtedly need some help and assistance and look forward to meeting many of the fine people of Alaska that helped pioneer the world of Fat biking. There are some great remote trips to cabins and hot springs that would be nice to share with others. If you are able to offer some assistance, especially in the form of information, please drop me a note or post on the site. In advance, I greatly appreciate your help.
