Alfa Extreme North Pole boots were well worth the trip to Sportsnett in Norway! More on the search for them here What boots to wear for a polar expedition?

An interesting interview with Ben Saunders by Nick Duerden in yesterday's Independent. Here's the link http://www.independent.co.uk/news/people/in-scotts-steps-how-two-men-walked-to-the-south-pole-and-into-the-record-books-9150308.html
As Ben Saunders sat in his tent updating his blog, the Antarctic wind in a foul mood outside, he could no longer feel his fingertips. Saunders and his co-explorer Tarka L'Herpiniere were 99 days into what would become a 105-day trek recreating – but, crucially, surpassing – Captain Scott's ill-fated 1912 expedition across the South Pole.

Ben chats to NPR about the Scott Expedition, blogging daily and how he's feeling now he's home http://www.npr.org/2014/02/23/281601388/explorers-aim-for-perilous-polar-trek-get-home-in-one-piece
Two men broke a record for traveling from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole and back, on foot. They retraced the steps of a British Royal Navy officer, whose team died on the journey in 1912.

An unsupported return journey on foot from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole and back completing a journey that hasn't been finished in more than a century -Captain Scott's 1910-12 Terra Nova route.
Introduction

The expedition Captain Scott died hoping to achieve - the most poignant journey of the golden age of Edwardian exploration - remains unfinished to this day.

British adventurers Ben Saunders and Tarka L'Herpiniere are setting out to complete Scott's 1,800-mile return journey from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole and back on foot.

Pushing the boundaries of human potential, the Scott Expedition will be the longest unsupported polar journey in history and the next chapter in one of the greatest stories of polar exploration ever told.

Ben and Tarka are in Antarctica now. Watch their journey unfold through daily blogs, photos and regular videos at www.youtube.com/scottexpedition
