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.

    Communication has not been too regular with this ANI expedition, maybe the tourists have had other fish to fry instead of keeping their log up to date. Or perhaps it has been their blisters.

  • Fresh supplies soon

    The 'tourists' are now continuing on their way without Jill Maxwell, who has opted to drop out of the expedition.

  • Crevasses force the team to zigzag.

    Published on 05.12.2008

    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.

  • And they’re off!

    Published on 28.11.2008

    The members of the expedition, accompanied by their guide, set out from base camp on 24th November.
