Thinking about heading up to AK? One of the participants on our trip is an English professor in ALabama and he got our story published in AW:) Hes a real humble guy so I think it was more of a publishing exercise than anything but...I'd be happy to send you his story which pretty much dials out our trip.
If you have an email I can send you over the article. Also, I'd be happy to answer any questions you have on the trip that I can answer. The trip was so fun I ran it back to back years. All I can say is jaw dropping. Praying for a Salt season:)
