2017 Destination unknown

2016
In 2016 I took a turn.
An unsigned turn without a street name, an unpaved road not to be found on any map or GPS. Without certainty about where it would lead, what the surface would be like, if it could be a dead end road, have side trails or be just a detour bound to join the main road again.

This whole trip started with wanting to see and experience Alaska. Strongly inspired by 'Into the Wild', where Chris McCandless refers to the wilderness, the 'real' Alaska, as 'Alaska Alaska'.

6 months on the road

‘You haven’t been gone that long yet..‘ my brother said to me on the phone this morning, as we casually discussed when I might be in the Netherlands again. Amazing how perception of time can differ.

...And then it all collapsed

My latest blog I wrote on October 9th. The next day I was going to start at the Icefiedls Parkway. Nonetheless I didn’t get to post it until October 13th, still in Jasper. This blog is about what happened during the days in between.

Getting used to wilderness

Right at the moment when I open my laptop to get started on my new blogpost the emergency alarm rings. My heartbeat trips for a moment while my brain immediately starts working and determining my position. What’s the procedure? Where can I go?
