"Take a course in good water and air; and in the eternal youth of Nature you may renew your own. Go quietly, alone; no harm will befall you." ~ John Muir
6 p.m. on Thursday, November 5, 2015 at Cyclova XC:
Adventure: Duane Lee and Tom Anderson present "A Long Way to go For a Birthday Party: Paddling the Utukok." This is a short film and slide show on their 2015 Alaska paddling adventure that covered 230 miles of the Utukok River, which rises in the Brooks Range and empties into the Chukchi Sea of the Arctic Ocean. With no sign of civilization for as far as the eye can see, four men venture out on nearly a month long trip to the far reaches of Alaska. They encounter Inuit tribes, rare flora and fauna, and a beautiful and vast wilderness that cannot be reproduced. These hearty travellers map their own route, dehydrate their food, and pack their gear to be dropped by bush plane in the true wild of North America! You won't want to miss this one! Come journey with them through the images and stories they returned with.
Tech: Duane Lee, Cyclova's very own adventure-lover, discusses trip planning. Get tips from a seasoned traveler on mapping, food preparation, packing, and more. Have a trip you'd like to plan? Just ask Duane for his advice; odds are he's been there and he'll practically plan the trip for you!
