1. Rob and Linda attempted the 230 km crossing of the South Patagonia Icecap - climbing up the Jorge Montt glacier with the intention of coming down into Argentina around the Upsala Glacier or Marconi Pass. They only managed to get 7 kms from the point at which the boat left them - though they traveled at least 10 times that far in the effort to get their gear up the valley and onto the glacier.

    With warmer than usual weather they encountered metres of rain, prickly bushes, wet, deep snow and found it too hard to make enough progress. they finally faced a hard decision - to push on or turn back.

  2. On the 28th February 2010 Rob, Sarah and Linda set out from Ward Hunt Island to cross 780 kms of arctic sea ice with a goal of reaching the North Pole. Challenged by the cold temperatures, pressure ridges and miles of rubble ice, open water leads and wind creating ice drift the team find themselves running out of time to reach their goal. They push themselves to new levels of determination to do what they can to achieve the dream.
