Two guys over at Halley Station wanted to find out what it feels like to man-haul 140kg. They had a little 5km test run to see how that great British tradition of man-hauling is working out for them.
A few years back we did a similar experiment here at the South Pole on the anniversary of Cpt. Scott’s arrival. We took turns hauling a sledge, filled with use
lessful items out of the recycling bin. It was hard work and we didn’t get anywhere near 5km. We basically just posed for pictures.
So hop on over an read their not too serious account. I’ll have a cup of hot cocoa waiting for you if you make it to the Pole.
