He spent over 20 days journeying over 3,200 nautical miles in Antarctica before heading to Patagonia for the second part of his expedition. Throughout his journey, he referenced the stories of Antarctic explorers, Ernest Shackleton and Robert Scott. Like them, he saw his surroundings to be dangerous, inhospitable and forbidding.
