25c = 77f  Okay..  That's in his tent.  That's his thing.  If he's into that, "great" I say.

Just wonder how one gets financing for such a deal.  I would like to visit every strip club in Illinois being possibly the first Illinoisan to do so.  I would need drivers, medical people and plenty of one dollar bills to accomplish this.  People in banks say "Nice PowerPoint Mr. Freakstorm but you're going to have to leave before we all knee you in the crotch - again."

With the exception of a pharmaceutical company that makes a powerful anti-biotic, no one wants to sponsor me.

He should stop rubbing himself with Bengay.

Sounds like a bid on Kickstarter would be a good idea. The plan should involve some sort of coffee table book being published at the end and people in the Kickstarter above a certain level get a copy. Keepest supporter would obviously be for $1, then $20 (lapdance!), then coffee table and the top level would be someone going with you on the trip.

I think I see your problem.

These bankers that you're talking to, do they look like this?:

I'll drive, but being a heterosexual woman would prefer to stay outside with the car, chatting up those delicious-looking bouncers....

"Antony was accompanied by more than 8,000 school children."

This sentence irked me.

Also, don't tents have zippers? Couldn't he just have opened a zipper a little bit to let some cold air in?

If he's being accompanied by 8,000 school children, he's probably a bit reluctant to open his zipper.

No kidding. Maybe it's a no-no, like, the weather could go south (haha!) really fast while you're asleep? Or maybe the blowing snow/wind chill could cause frostbite even if it's too warm in the tent? Doesn't sound very likely.

I don't know, sounds like he should have just opened the proverbial window.

I can't believe they didn't find a way to pin this on global warming.

Can't believe it took this long for a denier to politicize this thread.

"Bengay"? He's Brit. Probably still is.

Maybe he had trouble reaching the door with all those school children in the way.

Why is he considered an explorer? Is he going someplace no one has ever been before, or using a brand-new route to get there?

Documentaries. Kickstarter has taught me you can get funding to do any stupid thing you can imagine as long as you claim you're going to shoot a documentary about it.

You'll find thousands of such examples over on Vimeo.

That was what I was thinking too, but you'd think they'd take a moment to explain that since they've taken the time to write this article about it.

You mean the Global Ice Age deniers?

Right, of course the 24 hour sunlight is no problem for sleeping, but dealing with sweltering 25 ºC temperatures in your tent with no way of cooling off was the biggest challenge.

25? Is that all?

It's that hot at 2am here at the moment. Don't get me started on places like Arizona.
