Colin O’Brady becomes first to cross Antarctica alone, unaided

Damn these lazy, self-entitled Millennials….Also, Colin O’Brady finished his 932 mile crossing of Antarctica ahead of schedule after he got into a “flow” and did a 32 hour ultramarathon to finish off the last 80 miles.

Writer. In the summers, I live and work in the incredible state of Alaska, in the bush community of McCarthy; I pass the winters in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. I'm working on a memoir-based nonfiction book on the American Dream. I blog, quite frequently, and I also have a novel in process, set in Alaska.


    • Good point. I hadn’t thought of that comparison….However…ha, ha…When you’re in the middle of Antarctica, surrounded only by ice and cold, then quitting really isn’t an option, nor is procrastination. Writers, on the other hand….let’s just say that a catchy article/meme/message can derail us and seems to have more power to delay our writing projects than all the miles of ice at the south pole. =)

Consider this post an invitation, an invitation to comment and collaborate, in an open-ended sort of way, so please share your...whatever it is that's on your mind: thoughts, ideas, greetings, angst/irritation, inspiration, confusion, query, rant, salutation, data/research, meme, epigram, exposition or epiphany -- because I'm all about the synergy and solidarity. ~ JE
