Andrew Skurka Offering Scholarships For His Backcountry Trips

We’ve never attended one of backpacking extraordinaire Andrew Skurka’s guided wilderness trips, but they look incredible and we have little doubt they’re worth every cent, whether in Alaska or the High Sierra. Now, Skurka is offering scholarships to attendees who need the financial assistance. It’s an awesome thing to do, and one that can dramatically alter the makeup of backpacking groups. Good on ya, Andrew. You can apply here and see the trips on offer, here. Photo of trip with Skurka, credit: edwademd/Flickr
