What are you curious about in regards to the polar regions?
"Wildlife, exploration history, wildlife, geography...and did I mention wildlife?"
When did you travel to the Arctic?
"I sailed on Akademik Ioffe in the Canadian Arctic in August 2009."
Dave's advice for polar travelers.
"Go as often as you can, twice a year is recommended. Bring absurdly large amounts of film or storage for digital photos."
