Trans-Antarctic Expedition Completes East Coast Tour and Norway Training


The South 2014 expedition completed its East Coast Tour and Norway Training.

Washington, DC, March 24, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The Imperial Trans-Antarctic Centenary Expedition 2014 (www.south2014.com) wrapped up a successful two-week speaking tour of Washington, DC and New York City on March 1. During the tour, expedition leader Jo Davies, team member Stewart Stirling, and US liaison Glenn M. Stein appeared on the News (www.pbs.org/newshour/thenews). Jo Davies was also interviewed for the PBS NewsHour (www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/2013/03/following-in-shackletons-footsteps.html). After the tour, The EmeraldPlanet featured a podcast about the expedition (http://emerald-planet.org/03032013.htm).

An important component in the South 2014 training program is the recent addition of Fluid Technology Worldwide as a training partner. During the first week of March, the team came together in the Hardangervidda area of Norway for two weeks of training. The aim was to learn survival skills for polar travel and living, along with lessons in kite skiing – an essential skill required to across Antarctica. Not only did team members learn new skills, but they also got to know one another better on a personal level.
