Bernice and Felix at the North Pole
Today Bernice will appear on camera in the Latenight Show RTL 4 of Huberto Tan in Nederland as their special guest tonight! She will talk about the expedition and that she is sometimes suprised by herself why she’s doing such expedition.
No need for the North Pole if the arctic conditions are right at my front door? I couldn’t ask for a better place to get fit and test all my gear — are my boots really waterproof? can I wear a down jacket if I pull a sled, how does my back feel, pulling all that weight? well today in these conditions, I found out.
Here is Keystone Canyon and the Lowe River in Valdez, Alaska from 1/26/2014. Due to the high temperatures in Alaska, a glacier sized avalanche has blocked the river. An ice lake has formed, currently at an estimated depth of 60 feet and growing. The Richardson Highway is flooded and the town of Valdez cut off from road access. There is some concern as to when and how the lake will release and downstream and residents are on evacuation alert. This all happens in January in Alaska when temperatures soared in the 60 range. Extreme weather events will be common, even in Alaska!
In April 2014, Bernice Notenboom, Eric Philips and Martin Hartley are skiing from the geographical North Pole to Canada. They want to show the world how precious, beautiful yet how fragile the Arctic is. Watch our trailer here!.
