While traveling in North America this summer, one of our stay’s was with Lonnie Dupre up by Lake Superior.
After hosting our friend Stevie in The Faroe Islands last year, she left us his book “Life on Ice” to read and the stories where breathtaking. And listening to some of the stories straight from “the horses mouth” so to speak, was even more exciting.
watch his upcoming documentary, I know we will.
During an arctic career spanning 25 years, Lonnie Dupre has traveled over 15,000 miles throughout the high arctic and polar regions by dog team, ski and kayak. His path has often followed in the footsteps of the Arctic explorers of the last century – Robert E. Peary, Roald Amundsen and Knud Rasmussen. Like them, Lonnie has lived and traveled with the Polar Inuit, learning from these hardy people and developing a deep appreciation for their culture and way of life.
Even his house by Lake Superior is has no running water or electricity and it actually works out fine once you get used to it.
Both me and John admire his way of life and purpose of doing these expeditions.
This movie will definitely be a must see for us and on my opinion you should all check it out.
Hopefully Lonnie and Stevie will be able to come to the Faroe Islands one day to show the movie and have a lecture on the adventures.
