Biking in Alaska - Updates Via Delorme & SPOT


Got a good Tweet today from DeLorme on some folks biking and paddling the coast of Alaska and updating with the Delorme PN-60W via the SPOT satellite communicator. If you want to follow the trek, follow their Tweets or check into their Blog, Biking the Lost Coast, where they have also listed some details about their trip including gear. From their website, the basic plan is this:

   * Depart Bozeman, MT for Seattle, on to Anchorage, then Cordova and finally Yakutat, AK. Bikes in tow.

   * Monday morning we'll assemble our bikes and get our gear ready.

   * A quick stop at Alsek Air Service to drop off our re-supply package.

   * Begin riding.

6-9 Days Later

   * Roll into Cape Yakataga where we'll pick-up our supply drop; food, fresh clothing and some spare parts if needed. The package is being flown in by Alsek Air Service and left in a bear-proof container.

6-9 Days Later

   * Arrive in Cordova, AK.

   * Take a ferry from Cordova back to Anchorage.

   * Fly back to Bozeman, MT.

Looks like fun.
