Re: The worst journey in the world

I’ve loved these accounts too. It must have felt like going to the Moon back then with the lack of comms, remoteness and equipment. True exploration and phenomenal skills to not just survive but operate in those conditions. I always marvel at the navigation from Elephant Island to South Georgia in a...

Rode a penny farthing at one of the Islabike weekends... that was the biggest (and simultaneously the smallest :wink: ) wheel I've ridden - comedy value from very...
