Michael Burmeister, Erica Madison and Ryan Bougie are on a journey on skis and pack rafts from Vancouver, BC to Skagway, Alaska, starting in February 2013. They are looking for open source scientific projects including animal observation, snow and avalanche observations, geo tagging or anything else you might suggest for them. They are equipped with iphones and a 2 way satellite messenger.They plan to complete the journey sometime in July.

Probably a smart move to change the route, weather doesn't look promising the next few days.
