I am probably going to take some poetic licence

with my definition of ‘epic’ this week.

We planned a visit to

the Arctic Circle about twelve months ago.

That meant were going to remain behind

while the rest of our group  headed home.

How wrong we were.

Only about half were Australia bound.

Some came on our adventure,

while still others had chosen an extended holiday

in the Lower 48 States.

At Wiseman we were introduced to Jack Reakoff

who spent an hour or so telling us epic tales

of existence inside the Arctic Circle.

He talked quickly and quietly.

Jack  was the most interesting speaker

I had heard in a long time.

Time flew by and all too soon it was time

to board our coach back to Coldfoot.

A flight to Fairbanks and pack for home.
