Geri-Arctics’ Adventures on Ellesmere Island
Presentation by Alice Purdey
You wouldn’t normally expect to find two artificial hips, one artificial eye, irritable bowel syndrome, leukemia in remission, Alzheimer’s Disease and wonky knees in an expedition team heading to the remote high arctic. However, under the inspirational leadership of Chris Cooper, a team of seven seniors, aged 64 to 74, did just that – for 30 days. Totally self-sufficient and self-propelled, they encountered polar bears and muskoxen, were amazed that life could survive in the Arctic’s vast barrens, were awed by the stark beauty. ~ And they walked on water and built their own airstrip for pickup.
