For the next Outdoor Explorer we’re in Fairbanks for a kind of adventure that is uniquely arctic and Fairbanks hard-core: long range expeditions by snow machine. We’ll be joined by UAF scientist Matthew Sturm, whose studies of snow led to a career of traveling the breadth of North America on snowmachines with a team of very tough motorheads. And Dave Anderson, who has crossed Alaska and Canada on long treks, just for fun. We’ll learn about those trips, and how to prepare for motorized travel in some of the most remote spots on the globe.
