(First airdate: May 7, 2019) DANIEL EVANS: RACE BOSS OF R2AK. Our Town Host Maryanne McNellis interviews Daniel Evans, Race Boss for the upcoming R2AK (Race to Alaska). This eclectic event is now in its 5th year. It has expanded and evolved. Now there’s a race from Tacoma to Port Townsend called the 70/48 - that’s 70 miles in 48 hours. Not all that difficult? Well, the boats must be people powered - no motors, no sails - just muscles and grit. The main event is the 750-mile R2AK. Sails are allowed, but there are no motors of any sort. And don’t get eaten by a bear (that’s on Daniel’s business card too!). There are amazing feats of guts and glory. One guy made it all the way to Alaska on a standup paddleboard.
This week on the Compass, we visit what its discoverer is calling the Quimper Lost Wilderness, a slice of ancient rain-shadow forest that has somehow escaped the lumberjacks’ saws despite its close proximity to civilization...until now.
