Environmental Film & Lecture Series: Andy Dappen: Journey to Alaska

View PDF

Award-winning journalist and adventure sports enthusiast Andy Dappen shares the story of two Alaskan canoe trips undertaken by Andy and his equally adventurous brother Alan. The first, undertaken in 1974 with a group of college buddies, was a 6-week trip spanning 800 miles of coastal waterways in wood-strip canoes constructed by the Dappen brothers. It was cut short in Ketchikan when half of the crew bailed before making the planned final stop at Juneau. 

Forty years later, Alan and Andy decided to finish the journey, paddling 300 miles of saltwater over 24 days from Ketchikan to Juneau.
