To the Pole?

There are few more inhospitable places on earth, which is probably why the poles make such an appealing
adventure destination. And of course some of the greatest stories ever told – Amundsen, Scott, Shackleton – were all
about going to these extreme places. But few people ever make the effort to get to the poles, north or south. But if
that is your dream – and I confess it is one of mine - then you might be interested in
this guide to getting there. From equipment, food (tip: “store
oil in tight canisters but remember that some oils (olive) freeze solid in cold whilst other (avocado) doesn’t.”) and
training to navigation and the inherent dangers of making such a trip, the site offers a good deal of real and useful
information about traveling to the poles.
