Photo by my friend @matt.bansak.photography. Shirt by @kyle.roepke. This year I’ve had the incredible fortune of doing bi polar plunges. One in Svalbard, 400 miles from the North Pole, and one in Antarctica. The cold water serves as a reminder of all the things we strive for for our planet.

“Antarctica is like a rose. The logistics, the time, the travel to get there, those are the thorns. Once you get through all of the thorns, you find it’s blossom” - @icemandoug. Here’s 1 minute of our trip’s “thorns” 🎥@steinretzlaff @iceaxeexpeditions

@steinretzlaff @miles_clark and I had way too much fun crossing the Drakes Passage. So many people and experiences to be thankful for.
