'Human Icebreaker' Claims Polar First

Recommended Posts

An adventurer -- dubbed "the Human Icebreaker" for his no-nonsense approach to reaching the Geographic North Pole -- has claimed a new first. Towing his buoyant sled behind him, Briton Pen Hadow skied, walked, clambered and swam the 478 miles (770 km) from Canada's northern coast to the pole, arriving on Monday and apparently becoming the first man to complete the feat alone and unaided.

Asked if anyone had ever tried to reach the pole on foot instead of skiing, he replied: "I never thought anyone would be that daft." (He's sensible in my book for making that remark biggrin.gif)

each to their own and all that but I hate being a bit cold let alone on my own and freezing my squishy bits.

Apparently he runs a business specialising in trips/visits/holidays to the Arctic/Antarctic, (or someother such remote places)
