AAI Van heads to AK for Denali Season

Yesterday we said goodbye to our Alaska food purchaser and guide, Dustin Byrne, and AAI's Alaska Intern, Mary Powers.  These two individuals are headed up north for a four-plus day drive from Bellingham, WA to Talkeetna, AK (2,218 miles).  While certainly a long and arduous journey, it is through some of the most beautiful landscape that North America has to offer. 

Dustin and Mary, really looking forward to their drive.

The arrival of Dustin and Mary in Alaska means that our season up there will have officially started!  They are bringing up most of the equipment, food, and effort it takes to get our Denali season up and running smoothly.  For that reason, all of you joining us on Denali should be sending these guys positive thoughts as they make the drive!  A few of us gathered outside our shop to send them off, and give them a hard time about the drive ahead.

Just a little bit of gear packed into this red machine.
