In case you have not already heard (and you probably have), Andrew Skurka, a graduate of Duke University in North Carolina, completed his 4,700 mi./7,564 km. hike covering Alaska and the Yukon back on September 5th.
Here are some good links that recap his accomplishment:
- National Geographic Adventure Interview
- CheapTents.com Interview
- Video of One of His Other Major Hikes
His travels are epic, but I am sure that there are a few purists out there that snicker at his approach and use of media. Well, I guess his ability to manage his communications and business operations keeps him doing these mega hikes. Regardless, nicely done, Andrew!
