Summary
In the footsteps of Scott and Amundsen, two Aussies, Cas and Jonesy, set out to conquer the last great wilderness on earth. This is their story of tenacity, mateship and survival. On 31 October 2011 James Castrission and Justin Jones set out to achieve one of the last great polar adventures -- an unsupported return journey from the edge of the Antarctic continent to the South Pole. This is a quest that has been attempted by many experienced polar explorers before them and all have failed. This book will detail everything: the preparation, the setbacks, the outset, the highs and the lows in brutally honest detail. This expedition is the modern-day equivalent of the exploits of Scott, Amundsen and Shackleton. They are man-hauling a pulk and will utilise prevailing wind with kites where possible. Why they are doing this? Through realising a childhood dream and committing themselves to a groundbreaking expedition, they wish to inspire others to overcome fear and pursue their own adventures and dreams
