Re: Explorers to Retrace Shackleton's Epic Antarctic Journey
Well, that's good. Seems like the 50/50 comment in the article is some showmanship then, doesn't it.
Minne ... Jarvis already has a few runs on the board. He's no fool and has a pretty good success rate for previous jaunts.
While there may have been an element of showmanship in the remark my guess is he was talking about 50/50 chance of completion not survival.
