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


This is where Bill started feeling bad.  Actually, he started feeling real bad.  There were a number of reasons but one of them was dehydration.   The expedition leaders, Global Expeditions and Curtis Lieber both told me to remind everyone to drink a lot of water even if they don't feel thirsty and I did do that at the beginning of the trip, but then I slacked off.  The cold dry air on the North Pole and Sredney island really dried you out.  You could tell, not by having a dry mouth, but if your lips felt chapped.   I have learned this a long time ago that when my lips started to chap that it was time to drink a lot of water.  When you lips start to chap you are not just a little dry, but, really dry for a long time.  In fact, at this very moment that I am writing this, my lips are dry and I'm thirsty just thinking about it.

Ok, I'm back and the water here in Illinois is great.   Look on to the next page for more.
