Good read, Well written story that holds your interest even though you think initially there's not much to talk about in an Arctic adventure. I've got the greatest admiration for both of them for their perserverence and determination to follow through on what started out as a seemingly impossible journey.
Detailed insight into a one-off experience. Lots of messages for the reader- inspiration, motivation and product recommendations. Really impressed by the story from the beginning to the end, and also the ongoing journey. Loved every hour.
Wow! One fast and very inspirational read.
