Crossing the Arctic With a 5 Pound Raft!

Tuesday September 16, 7-8pm

Join Rick French of Pack, Paddle Ski as he shares tales and pictures of crossing one of the most remote places on Earth! With one set of clothes, minimal food and a high tech inflatable raft, Rick and crew traveled over 100 miles of trailess peaks and rivers in the Brooks Range above the Arctic Circle. Hear about wolves in camp, avoiding grizzlies, and more!
