Chris Burkard Completes Bikepacking Traverse of Iceland’s Interior

On August 23, 2020, after cycling 250 miles into the geographical heart of Iceland, Chris Burkard faced the possibility of his first major obstacle in his traverse across one of the most remote stretches of land on Earth.

If he and his four fellow riders stuck to their original route around the north side of Hofsjökull glacier—the third largest glacier and the largest active volcano in the country—they’d have to cross a deep glacial river that was impassable just a week earlier. They could play it safe and use a workaround, but that would add over 60 miles to a ride that was already mapped out to cover around 560 miles in eight days.

Burkard decided to take the risk. “Risk is crucial to everything,” he explains. “Risk is what creates uncertainty; uncertainty is what creates growth. I don’t need something to be super dangerous, but I do need

Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Shanann Watts (L) and daughters Bella and Celeste were murdered by father Chris Watts (R) in 2018.

Featured in Netflix’s new documentary American Murder: The Family Next Door, the Watts home housed the couple and their two young daughters, Celeste (3) and Bella (4), until Watts killed his wife and children. Now, Watts still legally owns the property, which sits empty, even though he’s currently imprisoned in Wisconsin serving three consecutive life sentences.

Immediately after Watts’ sentencing, the five-bedroom house went into foreclosure. That means because Watts wasn’t making mortgage payments, the home became the property of the mortgage lender. But they didn’t keep hold of the foreclosure, according to After many failed auctions, in which no one wanted
