Thought of the DayBy Spencer Smirl.

For the first six months of my involvement with this expedition, I was terrified. This was to be the biggest commitment of my life and it would come with the greatest risk. I have done a lot of crazy things in my life but this one tops them all. I had to overcome those fears to allow myself to accept such an awesome opportunity and be part of something like this. Antarctica is very risky and there are a million things that I am starting to miss about home. You just have to remember that home will always be there waiting for you. Life is an adventure waiting to happen.  Go out and live it!
