....and, let's face it, it's not often you can say that!
"The North Pole....the hard way" by Conrad Dickinson. "Supporting Northumbria" keynote address, 3rd April 2008.
Got me thinking why some people DO things (he and his expedition partner made it to the North Pole "unsupported".....while I find it difficult making it to the far end of the garden supported by the cat and a large glass of chewy red).....but then I got tired and poured another glass! Seriously though, it was pretty inspiring. Check out the expedition here (and consider yourself damned lucky next time it's slightly slushy underfoot)
