IceCold in Antarctica
Here's another adventurous expedition for the tour operator ANI (Adventure Network International). This time, the five or six members of the expedition will be setting out from the Ronne Iceshelf (which has become known as the 'Messner Start') and heading for the South Pole. The polar adventurer, teacher and dog-musher Eric Larsen will be their guide.

From time to time, the frozen continent produces dangerous crevasses that have to be bypassed. As these crevasses are not shown on the map, you simply have to adjust to the terrain that is ahead of you. So the distance calculated by the GPS does not always correspond to the actual distance to be covered.
