Ben was born in 1938 in Northern Alberta on a small mixed farm. He developed a curiosity for distant places and a determination to see them. The Idlewild Expedition, a completely independent and self reliant journey around the world, for me was the ultimate in travel.
An Incredible Journey: The Idlewild Expeditionby Ben Gray
Hillbilly landlubber Ben Gray and his sons launched a 55 hp boat near their ranch in Alberta. 2,000 miles with portages and groundings to the Arctic Ocean. Then west past Alaska to the Bering St and turned back North and East through the ice choked NW Passage to circumnavigate the world in 2005. From hurricanes to pirates to being arrested to meeting lovely people, it was An Incredible Journey.
