FORA.tv Speaker - Eric McNair-Landry
Having studied engineering, Eric McNair-Landry is a tech guru and web
designer. But his true passion is being out on expeditions. He is one of
the youngest to ski unsupported the South Pole, has kite-skied over
8000km on expeditions and has crossed the Greenland Icecap 6 times. He
currently holds the record for the longest kite-skiing distance in 24
hours at 595 km! His dog sledding skills lead him to embark on a
two-month dog sledding expedition in the high arctic with legendary
explorer Will Steger, not to mention has crossed the Gobi desert via a
kite propelled buggy and has just returned from a three month canoe
expedition in Mongolia and Russia.
To add to the impressive list, he was nominated for National
Geographic's prestigious award "Adventurer of the Year 2007" and
received the Outdoor Idol Award in 2007.
