Journal of my Antarctic experience working to support the United States Antarctic Program.

Ice Challenger


Throughout the summer months many expeditions and private tours come to the South Pole, which is called Non-Government Activity (NGA). Most of them ski in, but here was an interesting story. The Ice Challenger is a customized van that drove from the Antarctic coast to here. Wow!

They ended up staying longer at the Pole than anticipated because they were waiting for fuel to be flown in. Apparently the warm weather we had slowed them down and caused them to use more fuel than they expected.
