2041 Reunion in London

Thank you to all who were able to attend the 2041 Reunion held in London this past week. It was so wonderful to hear so many achievements amongst the group. One thing that is often realized but easily forgotten is that we are not just an unique group of people who have had the opportunity to see Antarctica in person, we are a special family who not only talk about doing something in this world, but actually delivery positive change.

Send off! The Scott Expedition

The time has come after years of planning and intense training for British adventurers Ben Saunders and Tarka L’Herpiniere. Departing England, they are now in the icy cold of the Antarctic to sort final checks to complete Scott’s 1,800-mile return journey to the South Pole on foot. All of us at 2041 are eagerly waiting their departure and most importantly, their safe return.

Ben, Robert and Tarka 

Be sure to follow their journey and their great use of technology while on this mission on their website The Scott Expedition.
