James Wheeldon & Alex Hibbert
n January, the air temperature (excluding windchill) can reach -50°C and the sun hardly rises above the horizon. This was certainly the coldest place I have ever been. Our purpose was to test equipment systems for a larger expedition on the Arctic Ocean in the depths of the polar night. Our main problem - there is no guide book for surviving outside for multiple days in the polar darkness. As we hauled all our equipment is sledges behind us, all the ice road truckers/engineers thought we were crazy.
