A bit stunning that Sam Ford Fjord big walls are not not of the list = cold beer,
bivies with a view, amazing Northern Lights, unlimited First Ascent/Descent potential,
no problem with water supply, clean air, no basecamp curio sellers or money lenders,
exotic wildlife encouners, excellent cross training potential on rest days (dog sledding),
highly renumerative expedition reporting potential in "Rock", excellent sponsorship
opportunities (Aussie Geographic, Paddy Pallin, Deuter, Winchester Rifles Ltd.), excellent cuisine (importedTassie freeze-dried lamb stew), no line-ups for the loo, unlimited climbing team bonding opportunties, enhanced green climbing potential with solar energy, absence of tropical storms and tidal waves, free access to killer climbing beta (Neil M.), possibilities for the Euro "piolet d'or" (price of gold is up),avoidance of Heathrow and Sydney security ( inclusive of fully body pat-downs by 300lb security behemoths), no gnarly snakes and spiders, Inuit art acquisition potential as investment
opportunity, post-expedition Kiwi lecture tour revenue re-generation, huge opportunities
to meet honed and stoked female extreme sport cross-country ski babes, access to
post-climbing Swedish massage and suana sessions, no bushfires, no cane toads,
absence of box jellyfish to limit after hours swim sessions not to mention no great whites (polar bears having reduced dentition), chance for inclusion in Simon Carter's
world climbing calendar 2011, proximity to Aussie embassy in Ottawa should country of origin need verification in Iqaluit pubs, the only salties are the ones you crumble and put in your seal blood soup, no carrot bolts, search and rescue coverage by Canadian Press which links to "the Age", Aussie language translation services readily available, development of exotic ATV and ski-doo driving capabilities, no climber access or user fees - and the list goes on. Would appear to be a slam dunk on the list!
