North Pole Travel and Global Warming, What it Means to You

( )  ( Model Airplanes )    ( Motorcycle Tours of Southern Europe )

We are on our way home.  We were on the North Pole.  We've been to Camp Barneo .  And now, we're on Sredney Island loading the Antonov 12 for our trip to Khatanga in Northern Siberia.  What a fantastic trip so far.  We had six skydivers on the north pole, we have ridden in many Russian Aircraft including the Mil 8 (Mi-8) helicopters, slept in tents floating on a thin sheet of ice over 12,000 feet of water, withstood tremendous temperatures that would frees the xxx off of a brass monkey, and loved every minute of it.  One man, Bill, who was very sick from the day we left Sredney Island, on the way to the pole, even said he had a fantastic time.  I'm going next year and if you want to join me for this fantastic trip, just click here for the Arctic Adventure that you will remember forever.     Sredney is also spelled Srednij Island on many maps and in other articles.
