Canoeist arrives in Anchorage after 5,000-mile adventure
Minnesota adventurer Bob “Beav” Vollhaber arrived at Westchester Lagoon on Sunday after a six-month journey paddling his 17-foot canoe about 5,000 miles from Washington state to Anchorage. Vollhaber traveled “the long way” ...
... through the Inside Passage, with a portage over the Chilkoot Trail with heavy snow and snowshoes, down the Yukon River, along the Bering Sea coast, up the Kvichak River to Lake Iliamna, a portage over the Alaska Peninsula to the Cook Inlet. Vollhaber said he was "looking forward to a cheeseburger with fries ketchup and mustard and all the ice cream I can eat."
