At 61, Robert Swan Is Walking to the South Pole Again

This post was originally published on this site

Sir Robert Swan is the first to admit that, at 61, he probably shouldn’t be attempting to walk to the South Pole.

“I feel like Rocky coming out of retirement,” says the English-born polar explorer. In 1986, Mr. Swan, and his team of two other men, completed a 70-day, 900-mile journey to the South Pole, the longest unaided march in history. Three years later, he walked with a team of seven people 700 miles to the North Pole, becoming what he says is “the first person stupid enough to walk to both poles.”
