Traverse the Coast
« on: 02/18/13, 03:03 PM »

Michael Burmeister, Erica Madison and Ryan Bougie are on a journey on skis and pack rafts from Vancouver, BC to Skagway, Alaska. They left yesterday form the head of Pitt Lake. They are looking for open source scientific projects including animal observation, snow and avalanche observations, geo tagging or anything else you might suggest for them. They are equipped with iphones and a 2 way satellite messenger. They plan to complete the journey sometime in July.

You can read their blog posts here:

Traverse the coast has just posted a story from Ryan's GF about their trip planning process. I didn't know this, but she'll be joining them for about six weeks.

They are above the Stave Glacier waiting for the weather to clear. The blog has a photo of the map or you can see it here:
