South with Shackleton Solo| TotalBoat Show

Henry Worsley bioDAY 65 | -15°C all day – crazy beautifulShackletonShackleton Story

Why is always the question when people undertake this sort of thing: Henry Worsley trekking solo across the Antarctic landmass.  After a 36 year career in the British Army Henry Worsley (perhaps inspired by the Aussie Frank Worsley a legendary Antarctic explorer) has undertaken that project.  He is halfway across.

Today - Day 65 he has passed the south pole and is moving downhill. He managed 15.5 miles:

In crazy temperatures of just -15°C, Henry spends much of a difficult day shrouded in whiteout and progress is limited as a result. But he does get a taste of proper descent late in the day – and ends up playing cat and mouse with a sledge that’s finally taken to the glide. The pressure is now on to pick up the pace and rack up the mileage each day.Follow him at Shackleton Solo
