Andrew Skurka's Alaska Yukon Trek

I am starting a new segment in my blog called Adventure in the News.  The purpose is just to give some updates about people and their exciting expeditions. In this months edition of National Geographic is an article about Andrew Skurka.  Skurka, a 29 year old, has trekked more the 25000 miles since 2002, a truly extraordinary feet of the feet.  His last expedition which can be read about online at the National Geographic site tells of his trek through the wilderness of Alaska, a distance of 4679 miles over multiple mountain ranges.  He not only walked the miles but skied and rafted, too.  What's more is he soloed the entire trip.  To read more about Skurka and his amazing feet click here National Geographic
