Sailing on network TV! "Chasing Shackleton" on tonight!

I recorded part 1 of the 3 part series last night. Watching it now. I'm quite familiar with the story but haven't seen this yet. They re-enact his voyage in the Antarctic in a 22 foot sailboat (lifeboat turned sailboat with leftover bits of his crushed-by-the-ice Endurance) a hundred years ago.

So far it's awesome. Definitely some BFS footage.

Check your local PBS listings.
Keep the expenses low and the good times high.
