    We have been asked to join in a remote wilderness expedition on the Thelon River spanning the Northwest Territories and Nunavut, Canada in June and July of this year.

    www.teampb.com/thelon_river_expedition_2004.shtml

    The Thelon River will take us through the barren lands of Nunavut and the Thelon Game Sanctuary. We will experience the Arctic first hand through the 100's of plants on the tundra; the Aurora Borealis; herds of caribou and musk ox; any of the 100s of species of birds who congregate in the area, and possibly a wolf or grizzly bear.

    We would like to build awareness of the Thelon and surrounding Barren Lands, with the ultimate goal of protecting one of the largest and most inspiring wild places left on our planet.

    Our trip from July of last year is coming out in the May edition of an international magazine. We expect this one to be even more productive.

    Now the fun part - we are looking for sponsors.

    If you have interest in sponsorship or just have some comments, feel free to post here or email me directly.

    Thanks

    John

    Sounds like a real fun trip! I guess you'd need to be in shape for a trip like that. I hope you have a great time.

    I know some oil companies that might want to sponsor you...um I'm bad, very bad. Sorry.

    Bradley,

    Yes, you are bad, very bad.

    However, I will openly discuss sponsorship opportunities with anyone.

    Part of the reason we are trying to raise awareness of the area is the threat of extended mining operations.

    Now, before we go off in an idealistic, let's-get-back-to-wilderness, all development is bad, orientation, I would like to stop right there.

    This area desperately needs a set of rules and regulations under which all parties must operate, so that the land and animals of the Thelon and Barren Lands, the people, the Territories and the economy can all thrive.

    Thanks again,

    John
