We also reached our fundraising goals on the Kickstarter page. Which is wonderful. Thanks to all that contributed for both your financial help and for believing in our expedition this summer. I cannot begin to express how much it means to have everyone out there supporting us.
Otherwise, everything is set to go. Next week Winchell and Matt will drive to Canada to ship our food to the three resupply points along the way. The tents from Hilleberg are set up and look fantastic. I’m very excited to wait out the first windstorm in one of them. The drysuits from Kokatat and packs Granite Gear has arrived, and it’s all just itching to get used in higher latitudes.
And so am I.
Here’s a short clip Matt put together. Final weeks of preparations with a little recreational powder riding spliced in between.
