"Explorer, M, 26, GSOH, seeks South Pole. Kites and sponsorship a must. No huskies or time wasters please."
This is the story of how Patrick Woodhead and two other friends set out to ski to the South Pole. Despite forgetting their skis, they managed to cross 1,100km of the forbidding Antarctic interior and in doing so became the youngest and fastest team to ever reach 90 degrees South. And all with the help of some very large kites . . .
Battling egos, exhaustion and the fear of peeing at minus 55 degrees, the team fought their way across the ice, following in the footsteps of their heroes.
Patrick's story gets down to the bare bones of polar exploration, but essentially, it's about three friends trying to keep it together in the harshest environment on Earth.
