It's been a while since I've left a post, and a few of you have mentioned this to me, so I'm going to make good and jot down a bit of an update on the fruit of our logistical labor.
It's a warm and grey winter here in Minnesota, which means the biking is great but the skiing is, well, not optimal. The lack of winter recreation has given me plenty of time to begin to place all of our ducks in their proverbial rows. We have secured three resupply points along our route, at Faro, Yukon, then Fort Simpson in the Northwest Territories and the final resupply point, right before we venture into the great expanse of wilderness east of Great Slave Lake is in the small village of Lutsel K'e.
Of course, to get these resupply points stocked and filled with food and provisions we need, Steve, Winchell and Matt have been busy packing food out in Salt Lake City. Here's a short video showing some of the food preparation.
One last note. Our ferry tickets have also been booked. We leave from Bellingham, Washington on May 4th. We arrive in Skagway, Alaska on May 7th. Stay tuned...
