Part 4 of their Arctic Journey

"An overland expedition into the Arctic Circle during the Winter isn't a walk in the park, and it comes with a lot of inherent obstacles that need to be considered (especially when preparing for the journey). Fuel range and fuel availability, potential road closures, adverse road conditions and visibility, and of course the brutal cold."
"In a large group consisting of our Bronco Raptor, several Jeep Gladiators, a Jeep Wrangler, and others - we were about as prepared for this Arctic Circle Experience and the trials we knew we could potentially face as anyone could be. Including the possibility of a serious snow recovery."

Yes, it was cool to see the Jeep winched out, and still continue.

Those dang Jeep owners . . . always doing something for a rescue. Cool use of a redirect winch rigging.

Agreed, my Wrangler on highway ice with 20-25 mph winds is more than a handful and a test of reaction time. Not sure about the Bronco Raptor, I'm hoping a little better, but it's still shaped like a box.

I would have LOVED to been invited on this amazing Journey. Until this episode 4, I was thinking we needed at least 2 vehicles, now hearing the remarks at the end I'm thinking more than 2 or 3 and an experienced guide.

It's so Beautiful up there, Anxiously awaiting episode 5...
