Ben Saunders, and some ice. Brrrrr.
A short while back I spoke to Ben Saunders, who's aiming to become the first person to recreate Scott of the Antarctic's epic journey to the South Pole and back - an 1,800-mile round trip.
Is he mad? No actually, quite sane. In fact adventurous would be a better word to use to describe him. Ben himself told me there's something awesome about the immense scale of the polar regions, and that going there and being the only human in about a bazillion square miles of snow and ice is an incredible feeling.
