Off trail travel in the Alaskan backcountry.
There's one person that stands alone in the realm of adventurous lightweight backpacking, and that's Andrew Skurka. He's running a series of guided trips for the summer of 2012, and his site is linked HERE.
There are two offerings, one is a three-day / two-night skills course. This is a way to build a strong foundation in lightweight backpacking competence.
The longer option is a 7-day / 6-night wilderness expedition. The focus will be advanced skills in a premiere backcountry setting.
The summer schedule hasn't been finalized, but I'm honored to be among the talented guides working with Andrew this summer.
