Scary - Andrew Skurka's new Great Alaskan-Yukon Loop Project
In one year circumvent the Alaska - Yukon wilderness. 4500 miles. No trails. Seven months.
Andrew Skurka's webpage on this trip
There was a local Camino de Santiago gathering of pilgrims recently. A lot of sharing of stories and exchange of experiences, and a couple of presentations. One was by Phil Cousineau, author of the Art of Pilgrimage. He was a good speaker, and I took a bunch of notes which I can't locate now. I do remember that he had a broad definition of pilgrimage. As a baseball fan, he made a pilgrimage to Cooperstown. Certainly Andrew's trips are pilgrimage to the extreme.
