Travelling Ultralight 

Three adventurers aim to walk, unsupported, the longest wilderness traverse in the U.S between Point Hope and Anaktuvuk Pass, Alaska. 1000km (600 miles) in just 20 days.
A key point is that they will be employing ultralight hiking techniques and carrying all food, supplies, and gear in a backpack, with no access to resupply or cache.

The three are Roman Dial, Ryan Jordan, and Jason Geck. Ryan is the Publisher of Backpacking Light Magazine and editor of the book Lightweight Backpacking and Camping, Roman Dial, Professor of Biology and Mathematics at Alaska Pacific University, is the Race Director for the Alaskan Mountain Wilderness Classic and Jason was part of the team that shattered the record and won the 2005 Alaskan Mountain Wilderness Classic, considered by many to be the toughest expedition adventure race in the world.
