Explorer Todd Carmichael will set out in November to make a solo speed trek, unsupported, to the South Pole. He hopes to become the first American to make that trek, and he hopes to do it in just 38 days. This excellent video, which I came across over at the Best Hike Blog (welcome back Rick!), pretty much says it all.
You’ve got to love how Todd introduces himself in the video. “I’m Todd Carmichael, and I explorer.” That ranks right up there with: “My name is Bond. James Bond.” in my book. 🙂 You can learn more about Todd’s Trek here, and you can bet I’ll be following his adventures in November. For now, have a look at his video.
