‘ The first time Torfi Johansson passed over ice northwest of Taloyoak, Nunavut, in a modified Ford F-150 truck — the ice had been 50 centimetres thick.

So it came as a shock to him, and the rest of the Transglobal Car Expedition, when on the return journey from Resolute Bay to Cambridge Bay a few days later, the vehicle he was driving stopped in that area and began to sink.

There was a "lot of noise," said Johansson. "I knew right away what was going on."

The Icelandic man grabbed his radio and told the vehicle up ahead that his truck was "going down" before he and his passenger scrambled out the passenger side door. He couldn't open his own door, he said, because the vehicle was tilting toward him as it sank. ‘

At least they saved the spare tire.

The water currents can thin the ice pretty quickly.

Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
