New Honorary Members from our Patagonia Trip

On our recent trip to Patagonia, we tried something different. Knowing in advance that we were going meet many fellow trekkers and others on this unique trip, we wanted to come up with something to leave behind to make an impression. So we had custom Arctic Brotherhood lapel pins designed and made. Anytime we met someone we liked, we bestowed upon them an honorary membership and gave them a pin. It was a huge success and everyone loved it. Unfortunately, we couldnt remember everyones names but we did get photos of each.
