Yowzers. It only took me 11 months.... Could never figure that out, isn't it downhill all the way to the south pole?

Wow! I met the previous record holder (http://www.ryansdream.com/) when he was just starting out on the Dalton Highway.

Apparently the previous record holder did the journey with a sag wagon. Scott carried his own gear the whole way! I still just can't believe he did that in 126 days!
