August 22, 2018: InterContinental Railway founder George Koumal and Chief Project Advisor Scott Spencer participated in their second community meeting in Wales, Alaska. Their presentation was followed by a lively debate about the advantages the project will bring to the community as well as the impact on the environment. The next day they visited one of the picking fields which provide a livelihood for the community near where the tunnel portal could potentially be built. Mr. Koumal and Mr. Spencer also met with Russia adventurers Sergei and Jana, who washed ashore that night on a self-made pontoon boat. They crossed the Bering Strait in fourteen hours. The ride through the train tunnel will take approximately one hour.
