In Episode 78, Sarah Histand tells us about her three week traverse of the Brooks Range in Northern Alaska. She is a native Alaskan who has done multiple packrafting and backpacking trips across the Brooks Range and throughout the State. So Sarah talks about the logistics of the summer trip - including trailheads, resupply, the wildlife, and how to maintain communications across this vast wilderness that stretches ~700 miles across northern Alaska into Canada's Yukon Territory.
Did I mention that Sara is a personal trainer? Well she is ... and she has designed a website to get you into shape for your next backpacking adventure. We also discuss the importance of preparing your body for the backcountry, common injuries that hikers and backpackers face, and simple exercises that you can do at home to prepare for your next multi-day adventure.
