Reminds me of the story of Ernest Shackleton and his crew getting stuck in Antarctic ice, then remarkably surviving. It was one of the greatest adventure books I've ever read:

It made me want to take one of those $5k guided trips to the artic on an old Russian ice breaker, sometime in the future.




Do you know where your can get on a trip for 5K? Last i checked, those trips would cost around 2x that amount: i would be absolutely delighted if i can find one for 5K!!!


I'm very fond of "The Worst Journey In the World", about Scott's last expedition.
