Explorer Ben Saunders wants you to go outside! Not because it’s always pleasant and happy, but because that’s where the meat of life is, “the juice that we can suck out of our hours and days.” Saunders’ next outdoor excursion? To try to be the first in the world to walk from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole and back again. In 2004, Ben Saunders became the youngest person ever to ski solo to the North Pole. In 2013, he’ll set out on another record-breaking expedition, this time to be the first to walk from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole, and back again
For some reason that I can’t put my finger on……… Ben Saunders just went on my list of most remarkable people.
