The Adventure Blog provided amazing coverage of my Antarctic expedition, more so than
even my personal satellite phone blog.
Here is a listing of all the blog entries in part featuring what was happening to me while I was in Antarctica.
It’s been surprising how many people actually followed my expedition. I met a den mother from Cub Scout Pack 866 from Imperial Beach who followed my Antarctic travel. Over the time I’ve been in San Diego, so many people I never even thought would tune in actually did. Not that I’m complaining! The more people interested in the expedition, the more fun it is! Hopefully people learned a little about Antarctica and also how to keep going in the face of adversity.
There’s a Japanese saying, “Nana korobi ya oki”. Literally, Fall down 7 times get up 8. This ended up becoming one of the expedition experiences and now is a centerpiece of my speaking events. It’s pretty easy to say. But, when you’re out there on your hands and knees, hiding from -80 degree windchill conditions, it’s much more difficult to make happen.
