A unique traverse of Idaho, using skis and packrafts.

You've got a way with words, and a way with editing. I've floated an ice encrusted river before, but only as a super tourist in early season coming down the Penobscot river in Maine... no ruck, no skis, same-day-in / same-day-out type of excursion. Your chronicled adventure is on a whole 'nother level.

Well done, and thanks for sharing!

This is beyond epic and the pictures are gorgeous. Thank you for taking the time to put this together and share it with us! Amazing stuff.

How did you keep your batteries charged to take pictures over the duration of the trip?

Yes, those were my Kom's.

I skied those through the Sawtooths and then switched to the OB/BC's where we crossed the highway.

I carried a battery brick to recharge the camera batts along the way.

When the story first went up, I tried posting a comment on Blogspot, but it wouldn’t stick.
The write-up connected with me in an emotional way — very cool.
It really conveyed the epic scope of the undertaking in a visceral way, and I really enjoyed the story and pictures.
I think it’s worthy of print in some glossy mag, like Outside.

With Mike's skills, he could publish his own magazine. Fantastic content and layout. Maybe he could Dostie as a freelance. :lol:

Wow, that is quite a journey, despite your humble manner of writing. Thank you for sharing. I’m at a loss for superlatives, but they are deserved.
