“As a trustee for The Coldest Journey I have been looking forward to this day for weeks. To think that the team are now well and truly on their way to attempting this extraordinary challenge is terrifically ex…citing. I can only imagine how Sir Ranulph Fiennes and the rest of the Ice Team must be feeling right now. I think for most people the idea of what lies ahead would be simply petrifying; but having spoken to Ran and the others, I know they are all raring to go. They are a fine bunch of men and if anyone has the spirit to carry out what any normal person would think was impossible, then these are the ones to do it. Good luck team!”
