A Summer Journey to the North Pole presented by Eric Larsen
Experience the life of modern day explorer Eric Larsen as he retells the One World Expedition. On July 1, 2006, Lonnie Dupre and Eric Larsen made history by becoming the first ever expedition to reach the North Pole in summer. During this journey, the team pulled and paddled specially modified canoes over 600 miles of shifting sea ice and open leads of the Arctic Ocean. This presentation spans the entire journey; from the expedition's first training trips to their 2005 attempt in Russia to the successful 2006 journey. Special emphasis is placed on the team's effort to highlight the growing crisis of Global Warming and the plight of the polar bear. Show starts at 8:00 PM.
