Welcome to episode 28 of Explore Magazine’s Live the Adventure Podcast.
Today, my guest is Caroline Cote. And as I hit publish, she is (ideally) in the final week or so of a self-supported ski expedition across Antarctica to the South Pole.
This is quite a leap from a self-described "shy little girl" who only got introduced to outdoor recreation in her 20s. But Caroline is nothing if not bold—this Quebec-based adventurer has already been to the Cold Continent twice before, as well as a plethora of other impressive expeditions.
Today, we're finding out what it takes to tackle such a trip. And why. And what it feels like to be faced with a month of solitude in the lonely place on Earth.
Yup—it's a good one.
