I pointed out in a previous post that, between myself and a few friends, we had plans to travel East, South and West and I wondered if I knew anyone who was heading North in order to cover all points of the compass.
I don’t know him but nevertheless, I think that he deserves a mention. Ben Saunders is attempting to set a new record for a solo expedition to the North Pole. On foot. Unsupported. He’ll be pulling all of his supplies (all 60kg of it) on a sledge and consuming just shy of 6,000 calories a day.
That last bit doesn’t sound too bad.
