Trekking across The Antarctica, it’s never been done before, 2000 miles in pitch-black winter, temperatures dropping to max. -80-90 degrees Celsius… Good Luck Fellows! Without sounding like a namedropper I met Ran around 1993 when he was in South Africa promoting his book Living Dangerously, I bought a signed copy and he delivered a slideshow of his first South Pole mission (with Dr Mike Shroud) and what a nice guy… he’s 68 years young now! Recognised as the World’s Greatest Living Explorer per the Guinness Book of Records. Search my blog for material on the Scott Expedition (there’s plenty of info and pics) and check out how they suffered one hundred years ago. You go lads! Go wish them luck on their website http://www.thecoldestjourney.org/ and follow their blog journal entries of the trip. SA Agulhas just sailed out of Cape Town the other day for Ross Island with Ran and his lads on board.
