Roman, Jason, Ryan,

Way to go!! We're following your progress from salida. It's cool reading about all the wildlife. We're facing our own challenges here getting ready for the PQ in 3 days, so we won't be able to check after 6/22, but best of luck from all of us!

...one more river to cross! Forget umiaks and think anti-gravity!


I heard your story on NPR. My husband, Dave, and friend Jon, are right now camped north of the Brooks Range, and hiking in the area. I doubt you'll run into them; looks like you're headed south. But in case you do, tell them their wives said hello! Best of luck to you on completing your trek!


Hey Roman, Ryan and Jason. I am a friend of Lori Meadors in Fresno and she showed me what you were up to since I'm a climber and backcountry fool. You guys are hardcore. I'm sure you guys are in animal mode by now. Iv'e been checking on your progress here and there. Sounds like you're still plugging away strong. I wish you good health and adventure for the remainder of the journey. Be strong, be tough, and soak up some isolation for those of us back in civilization who wish we could get lost more often. I'd love to see photos sometime, so let me know if you will be posting them somewhere when you get back.

You guys are the most hardcore adventure seekers this side of the moon. The world hasn't seen the likes of you since Columbus and Lewis and Clark. Very inspirational. Keep up the good work and long live ultralight!!!
