It's been in the works now for over a year and last Thursday, August 17th, marked the (1) year ticker! Dean (soggy) has been doing a FANTASTIC job on research for this trip and last night 7 of the 8 of us (less koz) gathered at Scott's for our first pre trip rendezvous to meet each other, discuss logistics, gear, and a host of other misc. things. Scott and his wife graciously rolled out the red carpet! I'll add that Brushy, has been a great resource in our planning with his history of hunting and fishing in Of the group of 8 that will embark on this adventure, 4 of us have hunted out of state before yet none of us in Alaska. Dean, his brother Adam, Dean's step daughter Kelly, and Bud are all newbies and of course Myself, Scott, Koz, and Scott's buddy Keith, are all seasoned "explorers". We will be targeting barren ground caribou on the North Slope of the Brookes Range above the Arctic Circle, most of us with stick and string, but a couple with rifle. We are also anticipating wolf encounters and we all plan to include a wolf tag with our license purchases. This trip will also include some fishing for Dolly Varden and Arctic Grayling! Lets get this party started!
