The Journey

Working on the route for a mountain biking trail this morning, we decided it should drop down and along a ridge before hitting the top of the hill. After all, it is more about the journey than the destination.

The South Pole Epic is that way also. Sure, getting to the South Pole is a critical part of the expedition, but how we get there is the real story. We will face crevasses, sastrugi, extreme cold, and whiteout snow storms, and who knows what other challenges we will have to conquered to reach the pole. But that is why it is called an adventure, and is what will make it worth doing.
