Key West

Arvid has arrived at the end of his 2018 journey, successfully completing his north to south he started in 2015. He completed 7000 km this year, starting 120 west of Watson Lake, YT, and trekking to the southernmost point in the US (Key West, Florida). This means he has connected all NA oceans with each other, (Pacific with Atlantic and Arctic with the Gulf of Mexico).
