Cold Feet

A Teacher's Tale

This is to provide the lowdown on one participant's experience of preparing for (and taking part in) the first Fuchs Foundation Antarctic Expedition to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the first successful crossing of the Antarctic continent under the leadership of Sir Vivian Fuchs in the Antarctic Summer of 1957/58.

Here you will find links to the Fuchs Foundation itself as well as pages detailing sponsorship, the science project and other goodies, including a blog.

I know it looks amazing out there, but the reason I'm wearing down salopettes and a down jacket is that it's minus 20 degrees Celsius.
