Felicity Aston becomes the first woman to ski across Antarctica alone

I admire the mental and physical toughness this kind of adventure draws from a person. One thousand miles skiing cross-country while pulling a sledge weighing 187lbs in intense cold with no human beings in sight for three weeks.

Felicity returns just in time for a drink on Burns's Night, which is celebrated with gusto at the South Pole.
