My trip to Antarctica doesn’t come close to the old BSA Antarctic Scientific Program and could never be compared to 19-year-old Eagle Scout, Paul Allman Siple, who won a contest to accompany Admiral Byrd to the South Pole. FYI – Siple is responsible for the term “wind chill.”
The 2041 International Antarctic Expedition is, however, important and meaningful. It will be a life changing experience for me and the international group of men and women in the last great wilderness on earth. As a team, we will work together to create change in our families, companies, communities and countries. We will provide information, knowledge and insight from around the world to forge new relationships.
I hope to honor Dr. Siple’s legacy by learning all I can on this expedition and returning to help make our world more sustainable.
I encourage you to learn more about Paul Siple and his extrardinary accomplishments. Check out this video clip.
