Walking With The Wounded Lifts Off!

Posted on the 22 November 2013 by Eric And Sookie Lovers @EricSookieLover


After a delay of 48 hours due to bad weather conditions, the Walking With The Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge Teams finally had lift off today, with their 6 hour flight from South Africa to Antarctica.

walking with the wounded team prepare to start their trip to the south pole, cape town, south africa - 22 nov 2013, ,

Alexander Skarsgard and his fellow walkers left Cape Town this morning in the warm sunshine, but weather conditions are a little bit different at their new home, the Nova Base in Antarctica. The teams will now commence their final preparations, training and acclimatisation before they hopefully begin the trek on November 30th.

And just because it’s Friday, we thought it would be fun to play a little game of “Spot The Swede”. (Think “Where’s Wally” with a 6ft 4 Viking)

Walking With The Wounded have also posted details of the food packs the teams will be taking with them:

Daily food rations for @VirginMoney#SouthPole2013 members: 5,750kcal per day. 28days worth of food weighs 36.4kg!



So did you “Spot The Swede”?


We suspect you did!

Hopefully there will be plenty more news reports and pictures in the coming days, so watch this snow capped space!
