Upper Kuskokwim River
Bjorn Olson and I spent ~ 5 days of biking on the Upper Kuskokwim River. Stoney River Village to Aniak.
The River dealt it out in typical Kusko fashion with temps varying from -25dF to 50dF (yes, ~75 degree range) and trail conditions ranging from perfect hardpack and truck trail to glare-ice, soft-snow post-hole'in, overflow and even open-water.
Visited in all villages along the way, talking with students regarding UA programs in Science and Engineering, displaying the fatbikes, and meeting with community members.
Was a good shakedown for just about any conditions a winter fatbike will encounter...all in all a good trip.
