I was very fortunate to have on this trip an exceptional staff. These individuals were some of the top experts in their field of studies and have spent many years in the Polar Regions. Our Expedition
Leader was the first to cross the North Pole from Russia to Canada on skis and the Assistant Leader skied to the North Pole when he was 20 and he will be the youngest person at 23 to make it to the South Pole on skies and unassisted.He is making that trip November 2008.

The other staff members were made up of experts in Arctic climbing and skiing, Polar Geology (the geologist on my trip was the person who wrote the Antarctica section for the Britannia Encyclopedia), Arctic Wildlife, Arctic Biology, and sea life.
