Hey Jose,

Going to the bus was fantastic, and I highly recommend it. It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been.

We rode ATVs as far as the Teklanika crossing, and everybody who drove them was very experienced. You could walk the entire Stampede trail easily enough though, as long as you don’t mind spending a few more days on your trip. We just didn’t have a lot of time to get there and back.

To cross the Tek we used a pack raft, but it would have been really nice to have more than one — it took a lot of ferrying back and forth and weird balancing. Do not try to wade across. The Search and Rescue pull dozens of people out of that river every summer, and when we ran into them they couldn’t have rescued us if we’d needed it. They were less prepared than our crew. In our group, we had one certified Wilderness First Responder and one person with a Swift Water Rescue certification, which made us all feel a little safer

It’s a long trip, man. Bring more food than you think you’ll need, and bring some extra fuel or gear to leave in the bus for those who will need it. Do it though. Make it happen. You’ll love it.
