Its the Arctic Ocean... having the wheels in the Ocean symbolize the start of the trip. Its like people who do cross country trips, wheels in Pacific to wheels in Atlantic.While I think is it super cool that you guys are doing this trip I am gonna have to say that the staged pic of the rig in the water is what is all wrong about having the "media" along for 4wd travel.
A legit water crossing is one thing, that is part of the trail.
Backing a rig into water just to get a poser shot is the kind of stuff that folks who want to shut down access can use against us.
That picture wasn't taken at the Arctic coast. You can barely see the mountains from Deadhorse, and only on a clear day.
As referenced the pic was staged and so the rig was backed into water on purpose it looks like. Just saying it is something that could be used against our community.The BP folks let them go through the "gate" to the Arctic Ocean. They only let 3 people go through to the "Ocean", so I don't know where that photo was exactly taken. I am sure Scott will chime in and lets us know where specifically that picture was taken.

Have a great trip and looking forward to hearing more at the Overland Expo. Will the rigs be on display there?
