I grew up in England. In 1963 I applied to the British Antarctic Survey. I spent two years down south at two Antarctic bases. I observed the weather, drove husky teams, read a lot, and imbibed Antarctica.
After my two years I attended the University of British Columbia and acquired a degree in history. I met my wife Norma, and after teaching in Fort St. John for three years I taught learning assistance in Prince George for twenty-three years.
Along the way I gained a black belt in karate, a masters in education, I cross-country skied, and kept on reading. I still read continuously, and now run marathons. Retirement led to writing my book on my Antarctic experiences, helped by an Antarctic cruise in 2005. My writing is one of continual refinement.
