Today I…have been reading about this: Antarctica2
It’s pretty cool that an expedition is attempting to reach the South Pole by tractor- recreating the 1958 expedition where Sir Edmund Hillary took three tractors across Antarctica to the pole.
What I found really inspiring was that the leader and main driver is a remarkable woman who has been dubbed ‘tractor girl’ and she is accompanied by a renowned female polar explorer and her record – breaking daughter.
Girl power!! Awesome. I haven’t seen anything in the papers or TV about this, but I am writing it up as an article for one of our trade mags.
You can follow the expedition on Twitter #BELIEVEINIT and Facebook.
