    Episode 5 I call my wife and tell her Iím not going to make it to the South Pole, but then I finally start getting good distances. Also includes bonus footage at end showing what my morning routine was like. https://youtu.be/PoTS5RgdzCw

    Episode 8 is now available. I strip out the rear skewer, the rear hub goes out on me, I wire the gears to the spokes, it pulls the cassette crooked, I take it apart and the internals are all ground up, I rewire the cassette to the spokes, eventually the wires break and I have to start scrounging more wires from my tent and parka. https://youtu.be/PUs_4ZucuVk
