    crossing antarctica solo

    unhappy ending:

    The British explorer Henry Worsley, who was trying to be the first person to cross the Antarctic alone and without support, died on Sunday, just 30 miles short of completing his 1,000-mile trek. He was 55.

    Very unfortunate. Sounds like it was a horrible slog.

    Glad he didn't die alone in the Antarctic.
