Historic Day In Arctic Exploration

Today was an historic day in exploration. Rune Gjeldnes, a Norwegian explorer completed his southern polar crossing – the first human to have crossed both poles unsupported! Rune trekked across the Arctic Ocean, from Severnaya Zemlya in Russia via the North Pole to Cape Discovery in Canada in the year 2000 and now across the Antarctic continent from Queen Mauds Land via the South Pole to Victoria Land. In addition Rune skied across Greenland lengthways from Cap Farewell to Cap Morris Jessup in 1996. With that, Rune has completed the grueling explorers Grand Slam - skiing un-supported across the three largest ice caps in the world!

This story details Rune’s expeditions on which he was only 48 hours from death. It is a great read and may plug you into some of the best Internet exploration sites on the Web!
