Ring of Fire - gear

We've been sponsored two bikes from Salsa for our upcoming Ring of Fire expedition. 
We'll be using a two-person Gnu packraft and a Alpacka trailer to haul our bikes on this trip. 

The Gnu is a very fast two-person packraft. This one has a zipper which allows us to stow all our gear within the boat, making it more stable and less influenced by wind. On long open water crossings we plan to employ a sapling keel under the two rafts to better assist with tracking. 

Our roughly 1,000 mile wilderness route from Juneau to Homer, by bike and raft.
