Andrew Skurka uses Ti Ultralight 900ml Pot

As many people already know Andrew Skurka from National Geographic Magazine that covered his recent expedition in Alaska - Yukon Range.
He has been using EVERNEW ULTRALIGHT POT 900 for long time.

Andrew Skurka's public speaking

The Alaska-Yukon Expedition was Andrew Skurka's most recent, and audacious, adventure yet. For 6 straight months Skurka skied, trekked, and packrafted 4,700 miles in a giant loop around Alaska and Canada's Yukon. His route passed just beneath Mt. McKinley, descended famed rivers like the Copper and Yukon, and traversed the Brooks Range. During the most remote stretch across the Yukon Arctic and Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), he went 650 miles without crossing a road and 24 days without seeing another human. In this presentation Skurka shares this journey's most important and powerful stories, supplemented with stunning photos and entertaining video. He also reflects on the broader significance of this experience and of his other adventures (which cumulatively measure 30,000+ miles), with particular attention to setting goals, seizing opportunities, stepping outside comfort zones, and finding humility and happiness in life. A Q&A session will follow the presentation and an assortment of Skurka's lightweight backpacking gear will be on display.

The Route

The AYE route is inspiringly spectacular. It travels through the heart of six US National Parks (including the Park Service's three largest -- Wrangell-St. Elias, Denali, and Gates of the Arctic) and two Canadian parks. It crosses only eight major roads and once goes 615 miles through completely undeveloped wilderness (no villages, no roads, no pipelines, etc.). It features lengthy traverses of the Alaska Range (home of Mount McKinley) as well as the Brooks Range, arguably the greatest wilderness in the world. It includes long floats on some of North America's wildest rivers, including the Copper, Yukon, Peel, and Kobuk. And it follows two historic routes, the Iditarod Trail and Chilkoot Trail.

Only 10 percent of the AYE route follows manmade throughways like hiking trails, ATV tracks, and vehicle-accessible roads; and about 15 percent of the route follows winter dogsled and snowmobile routes. The bulk of AYE route is organic: there are 1,850 miles of off-trail trekking, 350 miles of off-track skiing, and 1,350 miles on rivers and saltwater bays.
