600 miles, no resupply
On June 11, three Montana adventurers, Roman Dial, Ryan Jordan and Jason Geck started walking in quest of the longest unsupported trek of America’s most remote, roadless, uninhabited wilderness, a distance of 1,000 km (600 mi).
Right now they're walking through the Brooks Range in Alaska.
They hope to finish the trip in 20 days. No hunting or fishing to bolster their diets. What they eat, they carry.
To put this in perspective, the Colorado Trail is 483 miles. Most people take six weeks to finish and resupply at least a half-dozen times.
What these guys are up to is pushing the very edge of what's possible. To find out more, and follow their daily updates, click here.
