At the age of 19, two people barely out of their teenage years set out to break the record for the longest unsupported polar jounrey of all time. After 113 days on the ice, we had walked ourselves into the record books by covering 1,374 miles fully unsupported (without resupply or outside assistance). We spent 8 hours a day dragging a sledge weighing nearly 200kgs over the ice which contained all the food and shelter we needed for almost 4 months. On day 104, we ran out of food. We survived by eating the butter and oats we had left over.
