Most Expensive Beer Made from Antarctic Ice

This is an interesting article about beer being sold for $800 a bottle at auction recently. This is a limited batch of beer made from melted ice that the Sea Shepherd harvested from Antarctica during their whale wars expedition last year. All proceeds from the beer benefit the society.

Just learned about Christ Foot's historic solo South Pole expedition from this article about deVere Group being the lead sponsor. Chris Foot is going to attempt to do a solo and unsupported expedition to the South Pole and back to the Hercules Inlet, which is something that no explorer has ever done successfully.

SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger - Great Holiday Gift for Adventurers

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of SPOT. All opinions are 100% mine.

The SPOT Satellite GPS messenger is a great holiday gift for adventurers that like to go off the beaten path.  SPOT allows adventurers to call for help from almost anywhere, which comes in handy when accidents happen outside of cell phone range.  It can also be used to send messages to family friends that say your still alive.  The coverage area for the SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger includes most of North America, Europe, Asia, Europe, Africa, South America, Australia, and yes even a small part of Antarctica nearest to Australia.  Besides most of Antarctica the major areas of no coverage include India and the Eastern and Southern parts of Africa.  Sure it might not work everywhere, but it sure works in more places than cell phones and is particularly useful for those doing off the beaten path activities in North America and Europe.

Order it as a 2010 Holiday gift and take advantage of their special 2010 Holiday Offer.  This offer includes a bonus adventure kit.  The kit includes a code that gives you 15% off one Basic Service activation, a floatation case for the SPOT that is rust and salt water resistant, a micro LED flashlight, a safety whistle, a carabiner keychain, a lanyard to attach to the SPOT, and a safety tips bandana.  The kit is a $50 value of bonus stuff to make your adventuring safer beyond just having the SPOT device to use for calling for help when you need it.  The floatation case and lanyard will also help keep the SPOT safe.

Union Glacier Blue-Ice Runway Opens in Antarctica

The newest blue-ice runway has opened in Antarctica after over 4 years of planning and research to select the spot and make it happen. The new Union Glacier runway will be used by Adventure Network International to land passenger planes from South America. The Union Glacier also has a base camp from which to they will operate various adventurous itineraries. They have been doing similar things from the Patriot Hills runway about 70 kilometers away from the new runway. The new runway will help improve flight reliability due to its location. The new runway also has a heated terminal for passengers to wait for shuttle service to the base camp.
