My Journey

Erik starts where it is lowest, warmest and he is fattest

The route is 1360 km & 2870 altitude meters, starting at the Emperor Penguins

Starting weight sled 120kg

Uses 1.2 kg per day in food / fuel

Only allowed to leave “body fluids”

Reaches the Pole plateau after about 3 weeks

Then the temperature drops to below -30°C

At the same time, he has started to consume the body’s resources. As of now, he eats 6000 kcal per day / consumes 8-10,000 kcal

Expected to reach the South Pole after 55-60 days
– Then he has lost 15-17 kg
– The temperature is at -35-70°C incl windchill factor
– The altitude corresponds to 3500-4000 meters in the Himalayas
– The snow here was called “Fish glue” – ie zero glide by Amundsen
