Now - after re-reading this whole thread - are you looking for people to Jeep along with you on this adventure, or, are you looking to have people follow your trip via the 'net?

I am also planning a trip to the arctic after touring west-to-east in Canada. So much more of this country to see before I start touring the rest of the world.

Sounds awesome, couple of questions:
1. How did you plan this out? Aka, living with the Inuits, etc?
2. Are you looking to hit 0,0 on Lat/Long? Or just traveling around the Northern most part of Canada?

Definitely amazing, a trip I may have to copy.

Thank you very much.

I hope find friends to go to the arctic with me together by this forum.

Our idea is surprisingly similar.

But I will plan selfdriving west-to-east in Canada after this arctic trip.

I wish you can change your plan if possible, we travel together all.

Thank you very much.

I am living in Vancouver, go to the North Pole is one of my goals in life.

This time, I will only get to the northernmost in Canada --Tuktoyaktuk(latitude 69.69 degrees), I like get to the 0,0 on Lat/Long, but estimate it very difficult.

  I think visit North or South Polar seem is a distant dream for most people.
  "Both ends of the earth, is another planet."
  Polar tourism can be said is the extreme tourism of all types , not only it is the magnificent beauty of a lifetime, more people realize it is the great challenge on the top of the world .
  Everyone wants to be successful, everyone wants to live better, most people know can be done to achieve their goals. Unfortunately, only a few people would actually put into action. So, God is fairly, happiness and success will give these few people as a gift.
  Had a dream, then had a landscape, how beautiful a dream, how beautiful landscape there.
  For the scenery, more for the conquer.

Now,there are fifteen persons want to the Arctic Polar with me together.

Vancouver have two, Toronto have three, China have ten.

Because I emigrate from China, I have many friends in China.

They have great adventure experiences ,such as they have gone to Himalayas in china many times. This time, they are very interested to go the Arctic Polar with me.
But we are all haven't gone to the Arctic Polar ,So I hope find friends through this forum, we can journey together, and we can become the forever friends.

If there are some friends want to travel to China by selfdriving, I have many friends introduce to all.

This travel plan is prepared by I search from the internet with two weeks, I am very worried about a lot of uncertainty information , I think more things never goes as planned also.

So I am very looking forward to get more teachings, if possible, I hope to have the opportunity to travel together.

This is one friend gave me a link:

Arctic Ocean Expedition: A solo vehicle adventure to land

I have studied this link carefully, I have learned a lot of relevant experience.

I think their sponsors model is very well, I am going to design a theme, then beginning to collect donations.

If possible, I hope get recommended by this forum friends, let me have many sponsors, so I'll make more legendary.

Their Arctic sponsors: Mobil1, Adventure Trailers, American Racing Wheels, ARB USA, BF Goodrich Tires, Deaver Springs, Donahoe Racing, EarthRoamer, Equipt Expedition Outfitters (Eezi-Awn), Extreme Outback Products, Sirius Radio, Thule, and Viking Off-Road.

MY Invitation for sponsors:

Saving Earth -- Arctic Travel (2011.03.19-04.05)

Global warming, Arctic ice melt, the world's sea level rise, the human survival environment is threatened very seriously .

I plan go to North Pole for achieving my one of the Life goals in March 2011 by selfdriving, all 18 days, travel about 8800 kilometers. it is from Vancouver to the northernmost point of Trans Canada Trail and the Canada's northernmost Arctic town "TUKTOYAKTUK". I want to donate one solar LED lighting system for this northernmost point of Trans Canada Trail mark. Let it not only as a starting point of the Trans Canada Trail, but also as a starting point for the world's low-carbon age.

Let more people of every country in the world come to Canada, and experience the magical fantasy, romantic stimulation, brilliant auroras, ice igloo, ice fishing and hunting, gold of the road, snow-capped mountains beyond, the Arctic polar ... ... to achieve unprecedented "Earth- endpoint" travel dreams by car, and enjoy the wonderful feeling unmatched.

Call more people in the world more attention to "global climate change" , and more response to "low-carbon lifestyle."

Donate email:Bjvillasca@Gmail.com.
