Across the Alaskan Tundra

CommunityJames Hipkiss


Married couple, early 30s. One 100% Belgian, the other prefers to be referred to as Earthling (but has to write down in official documents Belgian/Mexican). First time home owners playing Bob the builder since the last 4 years during most of the holidays and available spare time. Both photography aficionados, sharing life with two cats and two Alaskan Malamutes. We have created a blog/journal (http://acrossthealaskantundra.wordpress.com/)to keep a record of the preparation for this once in a lifetime journey: A trip to the Arctic for a trek of about 150 km across the Alaskan Tundra guided by Joe Henderson and his amazing team of Alaskan Malamutes. (We are not that brave to do it just on our own ;) ) At the same time we will be raising funds not only for the expedition, but also for the Alaskan Malamute Club of Belgium and Malamute Matters, with the main aim to help dogs in need.

For this purpose, we have created Chip in packages: Minimum Chip in amount: EUR 1 Chip in as of EUR 10 or more - Shout Out on our Blog. And the satisfaction you are helping dogs in need. Estimated delivery: immediate Chip in EUR 25 or more -Shout Out on our Blog. The satisfaction you are helping dogs in need, and a photo of your name(s) written in snow (sent via email). Estimated delivery: July 2015 Create your own reward -Woo Woo! Get that creative juices flowing and suggest any reward you want in exchange for a fair contribution.Let us perform an interesting task, either during training or during the expedition. Whatever the world is your playground!(Disclaimer alert: However, we as the trip owners can either accept or reject your request).
