Expedition Well Wishes...
"I consider myself a bit of a veteran of the Arctic as I've been going there since 1968. But last year, as a staffer on SOI 2010 along with my son Will, I went through a life changing experience.
The Arctic is an amazing place and to view it alongside fascinated students from around the world as it faces the challenges of climate change was an opportunity I'll never forget.
I wish I was there with you this year, but I know Geoff and the staff will make SOI 2011 even more exciting, more informative and more rewarding than ever before. Enjoy, travel safe, and you too will be changed forever."
