Two Friends and a Polar Bear

Two Friends and a Polar Bear

A Story of Friendship and Endurance Skiing Unsupported Across the Arctic Greenland Ice Cap

Can two friends ski across the Arctic Greenland Icecap late in life?

Terry Williams and Aaron Linsdau were one of the oldest teams ever to ski across the Greenland Ice Cap unsupported. They trekked over 300 miles of frozen Arctic wastelands using compasses to guide them. Crossing fresh polar bear tracks reminded them that they were not alone.
“Well, you wanted adventure!”
Terry, 68 years old, and Aaron, 49 years old, had their tent nearly buried during one brutal storm. They faced the ultimate challenge of friendship in the harshest environments on Earth. The pair was absolutely reliant on each other for survival. Sub-zero temperatures and gale-force winds pushed their bodies to the limit.
