Linsdau : abandon at the SP
Published on 29.01.2013 - Solo Across the Frozen Wilderness (A. Linsdau)
This young San Diego resident, Aaron Linsdau (38), wanted to become the first American to complete, solo and without any means of assistances (no kites), the classical Hercules Inlet -> South Pole trek - 1 450 miles trip.
Aaron Linsdau (a Carlsbad software engineer) has attempted to be the first American to ski solo and unsupported from the edge of Antarctica to the South Pole and back. But after the worst voyage ever (he had encountered almost evevry setback possible), he made it to the SP but had to give up the idea of the return trip. Consequently, one may say that it was an abandon. And that his expedition is not a successfull one.
See here his pathetic voyage (his daily blog, about 40 pages)
