He would daydream of the far off places he found in those books when mowing and doing chores.It paid off because soon Thoreson would have sailed 65,000 miles around the planet and gone farther south than any other sailboat.“I was one of the first and only Americans to sail the Northwest Passage,” said Thoreson.Through his adventures he was able to experience the loss of polar ice for himself.For the complete story see 1/31/2017 New Hampton Tribune.
