Iceland Map

The Short Story: The summer of 2003, July 1st to July 29th, Jeff Israel (me) and John backpacked/orentered about 2/3 of Iceland's length, about 300 miles. We hiked off trail using only map and compass to find our way, and every night grabing a waypoint via GPS. We hiked over active volcanos, a peice of Europe's largest glacier, as well as the world's largest lava flow. Over our month long hike we crossed 5 degrees of longitude and 1/2 a degree of latitude. We hiked anywhere from 7 to 10 hours a day fording 3 or more major river crossing a day. For the whole store check out "The Story."
