Help Wanted

“Men wanted for hazardous journey.
Small wages, bitter cold.
Long months of complete darkness.
Constant danger. Safe return doubtful.
Honor and recognition in case of success.”

Apparently 5,000 people answered that ad which Earnest Shackleton placed in London papers in 1914. The documentary “The Endurance” tells his incredible story using old photographs and even some video shot during his Antarctic expedition. It’s worth a watch.

I love the ad.


Do you have a question you're dying to have answered about racing, training or food and cooking? Send it to me and I'll try to answer it on my blog.
