Polar Expedition "Polar Ring XXI Century"

Combine together the main routes of the pioneers of the Arctic, walk along the edge of the Arctic Ocean along the entire Arctic coast of Russia, cross the Bering Strait through the ice, continue along the shores of Alaska, the islands of the Canadian archipelago, the ice sheet of Greenland, and then through the North Pole of the planet to come to the Northern Earth and finish off the coast of Russia.

This task was set by the participants and organizers of the Belarusian national expedition "POLAR RING - 21 Century", which already grows into an international one.
Expedition equipped with equipment and cross-country vehicles manufactured in Belarus, organized by the Belarusian fund for the support of extreme expeditions "Polyus" with the participation of the club "AGB", support of radio amateurs of Russia and Belarus.

Designed for three years, the expedition "Polar Ring" opens a new era in the development of the Arctic Ocean and the conquest of the North Pole of the planet.
The first stage of the expedition, runs from Salekhard (Yamal-Nenets nats.okr.) To Cape Schmidt (Chukotka-Anadyr). The duration of the stage is about 9000 kilometers. The expedition will pass through the Yamalo-neeneykomu (R9K /) Taimyr (R0B /) nat. districts, Yakutia (R0Q /), Chukotka (R0K /). The planned time of arrival at Cape Schmidt is the second half of May 2001. Used by callsign EV21AGB (AGB # 125).

The Belarusian Fund "Polyus" is a public non-profit organization. The Polyus Foundation does not aim to make geographical and scientific discoveries, conduct experiments on human survival in extreme conditions.

Show unlimited human capabilities in the choice of tools and methods when conquering hard-to-reach areas of the planet, first of all, North and South Poles - this is the main goal that poses the Belarusian Foundation "Polyus". The creation of the fund is closely related to the history of creation and production of all-terrain vehicles on pneumatics ultra-low pressure, which became a new era in mastering hard-to-reach areas of the planet.

The Drabo team began to form around 7 years ago, and today it is a mini-family, with their own values.

It is planned to update weekly data on the AGB club page about the expedition http://www.qsl.net/eu1eu

There is a Belarusian national site about the expedition http://www.pole.by but it is long loaded ... be patient. Here the most complete are photographs and publications in periodicals. Also here you will find information on other expeditions of the Fund "Polyus".

Historical fact! Belarus, for example, has its own the Northern Pathfinder. Sent to Siberia, for his participation in the Kalinouski uprising, our compatriot Dmitry Pavlotsky discovered the world of Alaska.

Nature is still harsh and ruthless towards those who invade its holy of holies. And therefore, as in the old days, everything will be solved by courage, firmness of spirit and, of course, physical endurance of expedition members (Vladimir DRABO).
