As you can tell by the name, this blog is all about adventure, and I'm preparing for one that's rapidly approaching. On March 20, I'll leave home to begin a 14-day snowmobile journey crossing Great Bear Lake, where I'll have the chance to catch world-record-size lake trout. From eastern Great Bear, I'll travel 100 miles of some of the most brutal (and beautiful) terrain you can imagine until I reach the Inuit community of Kugluktuk, Nunavut, on the Arctic coast. Then, for the last leg, I'll log another 220 miles on the Arctic Ocean to Ulukhaktok, a hamlet on the west coast of Victoria Island, where I'll meet my friend Pat. An expert hunter and survivalist, Pat grew up traditionally in the region of his people, the legendary Copper Inuit. Reuniting with him, and learning more about how he hunts close to the land and survives in extreme conditions, should be the perfect end to the adventure. Assuming I get there.
