When Kotler takes a vacation, itís not to laze at a resort. He prefers backpacking or skiing or cycling. Ask to see a picture of his off-the-grid adventures and heíll show you a dozen. Last month, he camped on ice under the Northern Lights in Norway.

It was his fifth trip to the Arctic.

@Something Fishy Interesting way to protect your head, but if it works, it works.

Surprised that this trip has not gotten any media coverage in Israel or the US (even Jewish media outlets).

Why? I understand why it is big on DDF but other than that what's the big deal?

Historical trip for Orthodox Jews.
Either way, doesn't take much for them to cover a story like this. If it will bring them another few hundred clicks, it's worth it. I believe they simply haven't heard about it....

"Historical"? You expect this to part of history in 100 years?  :)
