On Thin Ice

On Thin Ice: A woman’s journey to the North Pole – by Matty L. McNair

An utterly superb read, but who the hell is Matty McNair and how did I come across her?  Answer – Top Gear!!

Recall the race to the North Pole episode where Clarkson and Clown took a Batmobile across the terrain and the Hamster (accompanied by a woman) took a dog sled?  Well that (super)woman was Matty.  Hard to forget those scenes where she was kite skiing the white stuff.  Incredible program – and an incredible book.  It’s more than a little humbling to see a woman who is far tougher and more adventurous than you are as a man 🙂
