Friend of AJ and in-demand photographer Chris Burkard *technically* lives on California’s Central Coast, but it seems lately as though he spends all of his time in Iceland. In the past decade he discovered gravel riding, then got into bikepacking, then bikerafting, and puts all those skills to good use traversing Iceland’s stunning, photogenic landscapes. Who could blame him?
Recently, Burkie teamed up with another AJ pal, Steve “Doom” Fassbinder and Cam Lawson for “The Forgotten Coast” a film project traversing Iceland’s wildest places. Here’s what Burkard packed for the trip.
