Explorer Helen Thayer


Explorer Helen Thayer Many retirees lead active lifestyles which include dancing, golf, and travel. Helen Thayer is not your typical retiree. The 73-year-old adventurer has kayaked the Amazon river, trudged alone across Antarctica and lived with a wolfpack and Caribou herd. Her latest adventure was a 900 mile trek across the Sahara desert with her 84-year-old husband to live with and learn about the African tribes who live there. Helen sits down with us again to recount her latest adventures and you are invited on the journey. Guest Helen Thayer - Adventurer Helen Thayer's website. Adventure Classroom with Helen Thayer
