Adventure Speaker Series:  Nigel Foster - Iceland by Kayak, March 6

In 1977, Nigel Foster and Geoff Hunter set off on a shoestring adventure to explore a country of just 222,000 people. Hear the story of the First Circumnavigation of Iceland by Kayak, and how such an expedition came about in those days before dry suits, cellphones, hand-held waterproof VHF radios, GPS, or the World Wide Web. That’s before the home computer, and twenty years before Google came onto the scene. 

Join us at the Olympia Friends Meeting House on March 6 to hear about Nigel's adventures.
