Now This Is A Road Trip
Washington rowing alum Seth Berling has embarked on a road trip, but this is not a weekend trip with buddies to the San Juan Islands. Berling and his brother Parker are biking from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska (the northernmost point in the state) to Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, a journey that will encompass 15 countries and more than 17,000 miles.
The purpose is to promote conversation in the Bristol Bay Watershed, or as Berling notes on his website: "preservation, protection and the restoration of watersheds throughout the Americas"
Berling came to Washington from the Bay Area, and was a two-time National Champion rower for the Huskies. He's biked up-and-down the West Coast, but wanted a challenge. His motto, according to his bio, is "If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space."
You can follow along the trip on Seth's blog. The brothers are currently in Argentina, and took some amazing photos of the Patagonia/Bariloche area. Well worth a couple of minutes to check out an amazing trip.
