An article about Andrew's voyage skorka in Alaska. The article is on behalf of the company and as such has some commercial elements.

Here is the link to the source: in 2010, starting from mid March skorka went for about seven months. 4700

It is a very famous.

Just repaired. The journey was 4700 miles, but he went only 2100 miles. 1300 ski. Foldable boat paddled and 1300.

If you ignore the commercial elements around him then he does amazing things. The GREAT WESTERN LOOP, for example, is an achievement.

Indeed, wrong wording. This surface route travel must include a combination of walking, skiing and sailing.

About the commercialization of skorka: indeed it receives support from various companies that provide him inter alia unrealistically equipment (I think even after his project received support from national geographic) and living often lectures on his tours accompanied by slides, but consider it a common phenomenon among Kings. Also, Ben pepper, Mabry, cam Hunan ("Swami") and more-everyone gets support from sponsors in these and other ways. If not then they probably wouldn't be able to do what they do so frequently.

Anyway, thanks for the correction that suggests you not only the exact one, but Baker accurate.

Amnon,

It's not meant for commercialization. These society publishers and travel books, each in his own way he The difference with me is hatchtvati personal, especially with pepper and even trauma once or twice, about all sorts of things that interested me and I received them with great desire to help and share information.

As I turned to Andrew skorka in time about something so the response I got was: "Please buy my book."

I still think he does amazing things. I'm not enthusiastic about this commercial attitude. What I meant. I believe in sharing knowledge and helping people who are interested in nature and walking (or running or sailing or any activity outdoors). Unlike other sports I think it relatively least competitive sport.

Agree with you about the atmosphere of sharing knowledge among aiikrim communities. To be fair, two points:

1 I appreciate people like skorka building career of what they want to do in life, especially it's not sexy like walking long distances or something.

2. to compare the popularity of pepper of skorka trauma or it doesn't really matter (and I have a lot of respect and appreciation for everyone). Perhaps that's why PT 1, or for other reasons, skorka is much more popular, and commercialized institution and I hand it to him.

I also expect that many more for bikers turn to him each day, which would explain the lconit/snob.

Again, as mentioned, on the whole, the desire to help the community is exceptional (maybe because the domain not very commercialised and there is a lot of money on people in love).

I disagree about it that refer to it a lot more for bikers per day and maybe that explains the answer I received. I'm almost sure that HALF MILE and Joe Lee, for example, receive several times more leads than every day and I know skorka from personal experience about both is they not only react but even help so all sorts of things. Another thing is that they don't think even less and much more familiar and popular skorka. They are less "legends" but are selling because the maps and information. The difference is they aren't as touristy.

Skorka anyway and do amazing things and his abilities. To see the clip on the GREAT WESTERN LOOP does.

You could be right that it's not No. commercialization.

As I mentioned, I have a feeling it's a combination of the two.

By the way, here are the rshorflatt from BPL on his link to Sierra Designs. The majority there, but it does give some gibberish inidctia to the amount of attention the man around Center.
