|At the end of the Road to Nowhere|
I'm not sure if he could hear me laughing behind him the whole time. My first skidoo ride turned out to be the most fun thing I've done since arriving in Iqaluit. We took trails up towards Apex and Robert took me as far North as the end of the Road to Nowhere. He then took me as far South as I've been here. We rode out over the Bay until we couldn't see anything in any direction. We couldn't hear a thing out there when we stopped the engine. I got off the machine and thought, 'wow, i live in the arctic.' I asked how far we could actually go, he said it was far but we could go as far as moving water and when he saw the light in my eyes, he proceeded to tell me that there were polar bears out there, and that we could get stuck and drift away on an ice float. Shutting down the idea. Some day I would love to see the floe edge and a live polar bear.
