I introduced Rob and James to my 17 year old son as roll models after learning about their great pole-to-pole accomplishment. Pointing out to him how you can do and be anything you set your mind to. I am sorry to hear Rob and his friend parished while exploring one of many great gifts God has given us. May Rob and James inspire more to adventure.
