Chris Bernard, Idealware's Senior Editor, is on one heck of an Alaskan trip. In addition to his full time job at Idealware, he's writing a book (Chasing Alaska, Lyons Press, Spring 2013) about his own ancestor, Joe Bernard, who was an actual, honest-to-goodness arctic explorer, and the Alaska that Chris finds as he follows in Joe's footsteps. So yes, he's a pretty busy guy.
He's currently in Alaska, on, I believe stop two or three of about a twenty-stop trip. He's taking planes, boats, and driving overland, including going several places it's only possible to get to via float plane. He's working on a commercial fishing boat, walking trap lines with a hunter, going to a bunch of historical societies -- and as he goes, interviewing about fifty people.
So it should be an amazing three-week trip. Follow his adventures (on this trip, and as the book unfolds) on his blog, also called Chasing Alaska
