Trak kayak halfway through R2AK

I’ve been tracking Matt Pruis who entered the full 750-mile Race to Alaska, paddling his Trak kayak as well as portaging some areas, which is a first in the short history of R2AK. He also had to backtrack because he couldn’t get through. You can see his entire track here:

He’s also been posting some fascinating soundtrack updates on his voyage:

Matt has about 367 miles to go and hopefully will get to Ketchikan before the Grim Sweeper (sweep boat) starts traveling north on July 1.

I continued to be awestruck by what paddlers can accomplish in small boats, especially ones that can be broken down and carried on your back.
