Bravo Kristin! I heard about your trip here on BPL from Peter Vacco and followed along on your blog. I was hoping you'd write it up at some point so I could live vicariously through your adventure. The courage to go out there – WAY out there – by yourself, for so long, is worthy of recognition. This one belongs in the same rarefied air as Skurka's Alaska-Yukon Expedition or Dave Turner spending 34 days alone on Cerro Escudo. My hat is off to you.Oct 30, 2013 at 12:53 am #2039316

What an excellent adventure! A great reminder that "the dream" needs to be big enough to fill the landscape, and that those places still exist.Oct 30, 2013 at 9:09 am #2039408

As I plot my escape from my beige box, this was inspiring to read. :)Oct 30, 2013 at 3:55 pm #2039576
It was very inspriring and encouraging to read your trip report. The Brooks Range is one of the next hikes I'm targeting. I won't be able to take off more than three weeks (may be max four), so a complete traverse is most likely not in my near future. Watching Buck Nelson's (he is also a BPL member) video about his solo 1000 mile traverse of the Brooks Range and reading your trip report makes me want to grab my backpack with my Alpacka and go.
Congratulations on a great adventure!

I too was in Kotzebue this summer. A group of us paddled the Kokolik River with high hopes of seeing lots of caribou and muskox. Hiking across the tussocks well pass midnight planted the seed of hiking the Brooks Range some day. You are an inspiration and I need to seriously give thought to this seed.Oct 30, 2013 at 11:05 pm #2039718
