Just wanted to give you all a heads-up about Andy Skurka’s presentation at
the Los Angeles Times Travel Expo at the Long Beach Convention Center.
He’ll be presenting at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 9th.


For those unfamiliar with Andy, he recently completed the “Great Western
Loop,” a 6,875 mile trek in 208 days.  He’s the first person to ever
accomplish this feat, but that’s no surprise, in July 2005 he concluded
another monumental first: hiking the 7,778-mile Sea-to-Sea Route, a
transcontinental network of hiking trails from Quebec to Washington, which
he completed in 11 months. Andy has also completed the 1,700-mile California
section of the Pacific Crest Trail (in 44 days), the 480-mile Colorado Trail
(twice), the 2,170-mile Appalachian Trail (in 95 days), and a 385-mile trek
through northern Minnesota in January.


Andy knows a thing or two about long-distance hiking and lightening your
load.  It’s no wonder that National Geographic Adventurer honored Andy with
the title of “Adventurer of the Year” for 2007.
