Meet a brave British Army team determined to defeat White Mars as they head into Antarctica on an epic expedition. One of the most extreme challenges ever attempted in the history of mankind, this mission will test the utmost limits of human survival and endurance. We talk about how to prepare to do half a marathon on skis and crampons each dragging more than 300 pounds of gear behind them – every single day for about 90 months. In this episode, the team leader reveals the huge risks and endless dangers they will face along the way on this adventure. Find out why they would embark on such a perilous mission, learn the insider secrets to surviving the vast white desert from getting serious on chocolate research through to modifying all gear – even toothbrushes- in surprising ways, discover arguably the world’s coolest drinking game (hint it involves crossing degrees) played where it is 40 degrees below zero and the winds are more than 200 miles per hour….and much more in this episode.
