SOUTH | July 21, 2005
British explorer and blogger, Ben Saunders will be setting out next year on his most dangerous journey to date. He will be attempting to complete Scott’s ill fated 1911-1912 Polar expedition, and in doing so, become the first person to return from the South Pole on foot.
In typical explorer style, Ben is currently looking for patrons to help fund the trip. However rather than courting wealthy dowagers he is taking the thoroughly modern approach of micro-patronage. So if you want to be part of this epic 1,800-mile, four month expedition, why not sponsor a mile of the trip. Slightly more bragging rights than sponsoring the neighbours kid in his school egg-and-spoon race.
