If you watch ‘Surviving Alaska’ then you know what the life of Colorado’s Andrew Skurka is like. Andrew though is a walking reality show.

If you love to hike, backpack and enjoy the outdoors chances are you’ve heard of Andrew Skurka.  Andrew has been referred to in many circles as a modern day John Muir and living out of a backpack is his comfort zone.

Skurka first made noise in 2005 when he hiked from Washington to Quebec in 11 months. During that hike, he had to cover 1400 miles of the hike in snowshoes. In 2007 he completed the ‘Great Western Loop’ covering 6,875 miles across 5 long-distance hiking trails, 12 National Parks and over 75 wilderness areas. He covered the distance in 208 days; 33 miles per day. He followed that up in 2010 with his latest adventure of circling Alaska and the Yukon.  That was a 4,700 mile trip taking 6 months by foot, skiis and packraft.

Now you can hear about his adventures in person and see all the pictures in an incredible slideshow of his Northern adventure in this fundraising event put on by BSA Troop 548. The event will be at the Pacific Event Center (1330 Main St.) in Longmont on Thursday, March 20th at 7:00 PM.  Cost is only $10 and $5 for scouts in uniform.
