Jacob Myers, an intrepid adventurer and polar
enthusiast, is set to take on a remarkable challenge as
he attempts to become the youngest person in history to
complete a solo, unsupported ski expedition to the South
Pole. The expedition will see Jacob undertake a
gruelling 700+ mile ski journey in isolation, braving
the extreme conditions of Antarctica to reach the
Geographic South Pole.
Having passed rigorous evaluation by the Antarctic
Logistics & Expeditions (ALE) in May, Jacob Myers
has dedicated the past two years to comprehensive
training, honing his skills and preparing himself
mentally and physically for the demanding expedition.
The daring adventure is scheduled to begin in November,
where Jacob will venture from the edge of the Antarctic
Continent towards the iconic South Pole.
Antarctica's harsh environment poses numerous
challenges, with blinding snowstorms, powerful winds,
and temperatures plummeting well below -40°F/C. Jacob
will face the daunting task of enduring extended periods
in a caloric deficit, hauling a heavy pulk daily, and
confronting the mental toll of solitude.
