Overview

Expressing the vague desire to "get out of town," and searching for adventure, David Fanning unexpectedly finds himself on thin ice 125 miles off-shore of Deadhorse, Alaska in the Arctic Ocean, taking orders from a 18-year-old girl, and being tormented by malfunctioning equipment and the silly songs of the eccentric scientist who leads the small research team he has been hired to help. This funny, detailed, and insightful account of a month of field research in the vicinity of the Prudhoe Bay oil fields, will not only give you a better appreciation for the dangers and pleasures of polar scientific research, but will certainly convince you to spend your own holiday adventures in a much warmer location.

Meet the Author

David Fanning is a software consultant, author, and part-time wilderness ranger living in Fort Collins, Colorado. His job sometimes takes him to far flung locations around the world, where he tries to fit a bit of adventure into his free time. His idea of a perfect vacation is to end up in some Godforsaken place where no tourist would want to be seen. His only qualification for Arctic research was being a warm body (at least, at the start) who worked cheap. He went to the Arctic because “you aren't going to see polar bears in Colorado.”
