Eric Larsen Prepares for South Pole
Eric Larsen is now in Chile, preparing for his expedition to the South Pole as part of his Save the Poles project, which will involve a year-long expedition to the ends of the Earth and the summit of Mount Everest to raise awareness of global warming. Larsen is trying to get as much sleep as he can to prepare for the journey, according to his blog. He's also stocking up on food–180 soup packets, 180 Rittersport candybars, 36 salamis, four bottles of olive oil, and 20 packages of butter, to be exact.
