I get asked a lot about what I do to train for this expedition. There are obvious things like training for the physical work, training for the cold, and training for hazards like crevasses.
But there are other less obvious things I've been doing for training. One is writing in me journal. I don't have very good hand writing. But I want a good journal of the expedition. I have been working on my writing and journal keeping skills. Today I decided to switch from pen to pencil. Ink may not work well in the super cold of the Antarctic.
