Hi Suus!
I knew a lot of details about the tragic story of Andrews' expedition, but I was impressed and touched by the documentary too. Expeditions like these are beyond imagination...
greetings,
Hans

Well offcourse it's sad and tragic for the family.
I always say: A zero or a Hero. With these expeditions there is nothing in between.

Problem is that he is missing. This kind of "death" is and will be a difficulty for the ones close to him. Not able for his kid to have a normal conversation about a flat tire or what so ever.

Still he was doing what he did like the most: Adventure in harsh conditions.

The documentary on BBC led to an intensive debate about Andrews' expedition on the British kayak-discussion-board: http://www.ukriversguidebook.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=47402&start=30
