If you look closely you’ll see polar bear tracks!Tanzania: apparently, if you hold an umbrella with socks on the sides and a cap on top the zebras will think you’re an ostrich and allow you to walk up to them. I had zero success and I’m wondering if our guide was playing a trick on me!Ben and his 15 year old son, Finlay,  in search of the best location to place Base Camp Greenland.Ben and his 19 year old son, Cole, trying their hand at surfing at Dana Point, Calif.
