On 26th January 2018 Richard Harpham, Simon Reed and Matt Harpham will depart for the Yukon to ski 600 miles unsupported from Mayo in the Yukon Territories to Norman Wells in the North West Territories braving Canada’s Arctic climate. Their route will follow the late Alex Van Bibber’s historic 1943 Canoil expedition which was part of the war effort to find a new oil supply route after the Japanese had landed on the Aleutian Islands. The original expedition led by Alex took 42 days with the team surviving on meager rations and temperatures at -40 below.
