When not adventuring around the world, Frazier, a Crow Indian (“Sun Chaser”), lives quietly in the Big Horn Mountains of Montana on the Crow Indian Reservation. Frazier says of his adventures, “I hate adventure that has anything to do with snakes or sharks.”
www.horizonsunlimited.com/gregfrazier finds him on the Internet and under “What’s New” where he has been adventuring.
In 2013 Frazier began a second attempt to circumnavigate the globe for a sixth time, tagging and transiting across five of the seven continents over a several year period, enjoying extended pit stops along the way. His first attempt was halted on the shores of Java looking across the Indian Ocean at crossing India and then Europe, saying to himself, “This is foolishness.” He said of his second attempt, “This time I will try something entirely different than the previous five and a half adventures.”
Dr. G’s current adventure is as an entrant ( # 9) in THE GREAT AROUND THE WORLD MOTORCYCLE ADVENTURE RALLY
