Crushed Ice - Optional

July 23, 2018

Steve Smith, Adventurer

We chose the best gear that we could get our hands on, including Pelican boxes to safeguard our camera gear, radios and satellite telephone. At 81° North latitude, one of our plastic kayaks, with a Pelican box mounted on deck, became caught in the current-driven ice pack and was thoroughly steam-rolled. Many items loaded inside the kayak were crushed, but the Pelican deck box emerged through it all unscathed.
