” Next stop : South Pole ! ”

Published on 03.12.2011 - Climate Neutral Pole 2 Pole

Ernest Johan Nilson has decided to leave South America to go directly to Antarctica. He still does not know if he will send updates along his trip on the ice. ...

We can't resist the urge to publish in its entirely the press communiqué published on 30 November by Swedish adventurer E.J. Nilson and being entitled 'Next stop Soth Pole' :

"... After many considerations and decisions I am now leaving for Antarctica to ski to the South Pole. I will be back in the end of January, but will try to update as much and often that I can.

" Due to the power of nature and time, this is the only option if I am going to finish Pole2Pole within one year. Icebergs, tropical storms, cracks in the ice, broken roads and nights in hospital made the last part really tough.

… I will then go back to the exact point in South America to bike the rest and then sail over to Antarctica (again) to have completed the distance within one year.

" Next report will be from another continent… "

As far as we are concerned -and our visitors know that we seldom share our feelings in this website concerning the polar adventures and explorers or so called explorers-, we would simply like to inform our visitors that Nilson's statement sounds a bit awkward.

Above all the last part of the communiqué which says that after having been to the South Pole, Nilson will be back at the same point from where he left South America (please would it be possible to know the exact location ?), resume biking southwards and travel (sail ?) again from Punta Arenas to Antarctica to complete to 'Climate Neutral Pole to Pole Expedition' in one year.

A bit complicated isn't it ?
