Jim Baird is a Canadian videographer, photographer, freelance writer, and adventurer. He is best known for his tremendous skills in a canoe and surviving in the Canadian bush. Recently Jim has teamed up with Garmin to pursue his dream of traveling through the cold and desolate artic territory.
Together, Jim and his loyal dog Buck will haul toboggans across Nunivak’s Ungava Peninsula in March of 2016. This 230-mile arctic winter journey will be self-propelled, unassisted, and will take 25 days to complete. The entire route lies about 260-miles north of the tree line and 400-miles north of the road system. Their trip will begin in Kangiqsujuaq, which is an Inuit community on the south coast of Hudson Straight. From there, they will follow a westerly bearing to the hamlet of Akulivik, on the eastern coast of Hudson Bay. Jim will also pass the globally significant, Pingualit Crater en route.
