Sir Ranulph Fiennes to attempt record winter Antarctica trekVeteran explorer describes planned 2,000-mile trek in - 90
"Fiennes and his companions will travel on skis, but will be followed by two modified tractors, towing two sledge-mounted living quarters, supplies, equipment, and 155,000 litres of special fuel adapted against freezing."
To me this is pure indulgance. Why he need do this, is puzzling.
Seems a waste, a crazy crazy thing to do that just warms the planet.
Why cant he settle for a freezer and treadmill setup.
