As usual, large groups that travel all seem to have one or two hick-ups, but luckily for Mike Horn and the Young Explorers, they were not two serious. Chinese YEP, Felix and New Zealand YEP, Rick both had flight delays which meant a late arival in Ottawa. Luckily however, they still mnaged to meet up with Mike, the team and the other Young Explorers the following day, just prior to their departure for Resolute, Nunavut, in the northern territories of Canada.
Not a minute to loose. With one evening in Ottawa, Mike was able to begin the thorough check of all the Young Explorers equipment, the trying on of shoes, checking for sizing of skis, boots etc, all crucial for an uneventual expedition to the Magnetic North Pole.
Team Photographer Dmitry Sharomov had the time to send us these few photos. Looking forward to some more news tommorrow after the groups arrival in Resolute.
