Philip Goodeve-Docker undertook a charity trek across the Arctic in tribute to his late grandfather, according to his Just Giving page.
The 30-year-old charity promoter described the 550-600km trek as "one of the great polar challenges."
This is one of the great polar challenges, through which we face such dangers as polar bears (not cute and cuddly), crevasses up to 500 metres deep, polar winds, temperatures of 5C to -50C, plus the horror of 3 men with one tent & no washing.
Part of my reasons for this frankly nutty adventure is my Grandfather, Patrick Pirie-Gordon, who passed away two years ago. Amongst his achievements were his key roles as Treasurer and Honourary Vice-President for the Royal Geographical Society, helping fund polar exploration, and Treasurer for the QNI.
