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

Thanks for the heads up on this. It is the ultimate story of human perseverance and survival. Last week I considered the contrast with this experience vs the ships recently stuck on ice in the Antarctic. In Shacketons day, one waited it out until the thaw, totally self sufficient. Be a year or so before they realized you were missing, another to finance, equip, and come looking for you!
