What it takes for Ben Saunders to ski from the Northwest Territories to the North Pole.
For some of us, this was the first we heard of the record breaking explorer back in 2008.
This was last summer.
This is from his stop at Resolute Bay.
Trainings on the Isle of Skye
This summer is a trek south. He is using Basecamp from 37 Signals the 1,800-mile Scott 2012 Expedition. It will complete Captain Scott’s ill-fated journey to the South Pole 100 years ago.
Heck of a life. Glad he shares it with us.
Ben Saunders is heading to the North Pole again, unsupported and trying to break the speed record or just over 36 days. Here is the first leg of the journey. From London to Ottawa.
For those of you who have never heard of Saunders before, check out this intro video from 2008.
In case you are wondering, here is the equipment that will accompany Saunders to the North Pole.
