Ross Anderson began his northward journey from Seattle, Wash. Then, he travels up the coast of British Columbia by way of the Alaska ferry, hikes the Chilkoot pass, and then makes the 500-mile paddle down the Yukon River in his kayak, ending at Dawson.
No small feat. To appreciate the distance, take a gander at the maps below.
