Ultimate Survival Alaska - National Geographic

National Geographic has a new series debuting on May 12, 2013.  The show looks like a combination of the Wilderness Classic and the original reality show Survivor.  Best of all, the series is filmed in the real Alaskan wilderness with real Alaskan hardmen.  Don't miss it! 

Tyler Johnson, veteran and winner of the Alaska Mountain Wilderness Classic is one of the participants.

New Poll - Commercialize the Classic

A number of people were quite amused by the last poll about training for the Classic so I posted a new poll about the fundamental format of the race.  You can find it in the right column of the blog. 

Speaking of race organizing . . . this is a good opportunity to thank current race organizer Luc Mehl for doing a bang-up job with the race.
