 Trek: The Teams

Meet the Teams and the Trekkers
Although only eight men and women are actually following the entire route of the American Frontiers Journey, an incredible array of people are helping them out with mapping, equipment, public relations, education outreach, cooking, medical support, and general logistics. These great volunteers are all essential to the trek, and we'll be hearing more from them in the days to come.

Check out the links on this page for biographical information on all the trekkers, the support team and the team leaders. Follow the links for journal entries from the trek as well.
