Until Austrian Gerhard Hafele completed his trek, there is no indication anyone has ever hiked and paddled Alaska overland north to south from the North Slope to Cook Inlet for more than 1,500 miles, crossing two major mountain ranges.  Craig Medred
OPINION: You’re probably wondering if I did everything right. By the book, I think I did. I stopped at the end of the trail where it met the road, putting one foot on the ground. I looked up and saw that there was a crosswalk with the illuminated man beckoning "go."Alli Harvey

How sad would I be if I decided not to plug in? Will I reminisce from a rocking chair someday about how I wish I’d listened to “Timber” for the 78th time on the trail that one day I decided to leave my music home?Alli Harvey
