Kayaking Around Ellesmere Island

They hauled and paddled their kayaks about 1,500 miles around the perimeter of Ellesmere Island last summer. It had never been done before. I liked this quote because I think we’re always only a split second from disaster:

Kind of a goofy sea kayak trip because we haven’t been sea kayaking yet,’ Jon Turk said via satellite phone 38 days into the journey. He added, ‘At every moment we expect the possibility that we’re going to run into big trouble’.”
