Jon Turk and Eric Boomer on NPR

As a rabid NPR listener and a big fan of Jon Turk we were driving home yesterday when my wife and I heard Dick Gordon from “the Story”, mention Jon Turk and his journey to Ellesmere Island.

I was fortunate enough to meet Jon Turk a few years ago at WMCKA. His talk was one of my favorites of all time. Jon’s philosophy on wilderness and spirituality moved me deeply, and the thought that every day we make choices between logic, and magic is part of why kayaking is a continuing part of my life.

I was also witness to his dance moves, which if you can believe it, might be just as thrilling as his story of paddling in the arctic.

The NPR audio of Jon’s expedition around Ellesmere is available here.
