Here is something some of you might be interested in compliments of Tracy:

 

Thursday, April 14 7-9 pm-American Mountaineering Center Foss Auditorium


Cost: $10.00

See the "Adventurer of the Year" by National Geographic and "Person of the Year" by Backpacker Magazine, Andrew Skurka, at the American Mountaineering Center

 Thursday, April 14 from 7-9 pm for his presentation and following Q&A session on his solo long-distance expedition to Alaska-Yukon.

Alaska-Yukon Expedition was Andrew Skurka's most recent, and audacious, adventure yet. For 6 straight months Skurka skied, trekked, and packrafted 4,700 miles in a giant loop around Alaska and Canada's Yukon. His route passed just beneath Mt. McKinley, descended famed rivers like the Copper and Yukon, and traversed the Brooks Range. During the most remote stretch across the Yukon Arctic and Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), he went 650 miles without crossing a road and 24 days without seeing another human. In this presentation Skurka shares this journey's most important and powerful stories, supplemented with stunning photos and entertaining video. He also reflects on the broader significance of this experience and of his other adventures (which cumulatively measure 30,000+ miles), with particular attention to setting goals, seizing opportunities, stepping outside comfort zones, and finding humility and happiness in life. A Q&A session will follow the presentation and an assortment of Skurka's lightweight backpacking gear will be on display.
