Support the 1st solo, coast-to-coast ski crossing of Antarctica…  

25 – I am the storm

We woke up this morning to the wind continuing to hammer our tent. The temperatures dropped and the wind got even stronger. It was too dangerous for us to move, so now we’re tent bound for another day.

23 – We did it!

110 years ago today, Roald Amundsen became the first person ever to reach the South Pole. He pioneered a new route from the Bay of Whales up the Axel Heiberg glacier to the Pole.

And today, 110 years later, following in his legendary footsteps, we have successfully climbed the Axel Heiberg glacier. It is a special feeling to have done it on this very momentous day in polar history…

22 – Standing by for the sun

We got to the base of the climb after 1 shift of skiing. I was super excited and about to go back into my “cage.” Then suddenly the clouds swarmed in around us…

We are now back in our tent, it is snowing outside and we’re in a whiteout. On the plateau, it would be fine to move in these conditions. But we can’t move up the crevassed glacier with zero visibility.

21 – We are all superheroes

The reason I am posting daily updates of the journey, even on some days, like yesterday, when I was pretty tired, is because I hope something I share makes a difference in your day. Antarctica is teaching me a lot and those lessons are not just mine to learn.

20 – The most legendary of battles

The last time I got in “the cage” was a warmup compared to this. This time I wasn’t talking in my head, I was talking out loud on every switchback as I fought that heavy sled up each turn. It didn’t matter who was around me, I was in my world. I was unstoppable on that hill. My teammates must have thought I was insane 🙂

19 – More bad weather

I was so excited. I got on my gear, started to get in my mental “cage,” told myself let’s go and was smiling, all charged up to take on that next hill. We got out and the clouds came in again and the move up the glacier was called off. I thought of that scene from Braveheart and told myself in a Scottish accent, “well, I guess you got all dressed up for nothing” 🙂
