Norwegian Explorer Borge Ousland Crosses Antarctica

Ousland was the first man to complete a solo expedition to both the North and South Poles. In November of 1996 he began a solo crossing of the Antarctic continent. He reached his destination on January 17, 1997. The 64-day trek covered 1,764 miles and was made unsupported, meaning Ousland carried all the necessary supplies for the journey.
