ALASKA EXPEDITION on 02/20/2010 16:28:01 MST Print View

Looking for a couple more members to Backpack Wrangell-St.Elias NP. This will be my 3rd consecutive year. We have 8 people already reserved and need 2 more to keep the cost down. Bush Plane in and out.
I have negotiated and brought together a full proof package, deal covering Hostel expenses, Sat Phone expenses, Vehicle rental expenses including GAZ, and Bush Pilot fees out and back. I MAKE NO MONEY ON THIS TRIP. I love backpacking just like you and want to get a team to go trek Alaska.
I have already booked rooms at the Hostel, booked a 15 Passenger vehicle for our duration in Alaska, locked in our bush pilot fees same as 2009 fees and purchased satellite phone time at 2009 rates.
If your serious about this trip please e mail me to confirm you are on the list. The first 2 people who confirm will be the only ones locked in. I have already booked this trip with my credit card so e mail me for specific details in cost and ligistics.
A trip of a life time.

I have tons of information to pass out to you that will make your trip a backpacking experience you will never ever forget and forever change the way you look at life and backpacking.
Let me know ASAP if your on the team!

Thank you!
Mike Martin

Hi Michael-

Welcome to BPL.

I stumbled on your post and thought I should introduce myself so we don't confuse everyone with our name. ;)

It's a bit of a curse, actually. The California DMV once gave the same driver's license number to me and another MM with the same birthdate!

Apparently there is a terrorist with our name too, as every time I fly I get "special" treatment at the ticket desk. :(

Cheers,

Mike M
