I recently received word about the death of Peg Morris.  Peg and her partner, Ed Landin, were Cook County residents for many years.


Not your ordinary bike trip...this one's to the South Pole

Ann Possis visited Nov. 23 with polar adventurer, educator, guide, and former Cook County resident Eric Larsen about his upcoming adventure, Cycle South. Eric, the first person to reach both the North and South Poles and Mt. Everest in a single year, will start in mid-December to pedal from the edge of Antarctica to the South Pole on a fat tire bike. You can follow his adventures here. Outside Magazine has a great article about it, too.
