The Southern Pole wrote -
In late December, when Antarctic days last a full 24 hours, we will be embarking on a trek to the South Pole. We will be completing Ernest Shackleton’s 1908 failed attempt to reach the Pole. We will be traveling on skis, pulling our equipment and supplies in pulka sleds. We are sharing this blog with several grade schools and middle schools in the US and Sweden. We are also helping the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology study how bodies adjust to cold over prolonged periods of exposure to not-so-comfortable temperatures. Finally, we are using this trip as a platform to raise money to support World Wildlife Fund's efforts in curbing global warming and climate change. All funds raised here will be donated to WWF.
