This Arctic explorer was one tent pole away from death | Outside Online

Colin O’Brady became the first man to cross the Antarctic landmass on his own with no resupplies or help in 2018. O‚ÄôBrady said in his memoir, ‚ÄúThe Impossible First,‚ÄĚ that his first mistake was made after traveling 760 miles over the course of 48 days. After securing his tent, the explorer took off his gloves in order to try to massage some warmth back into them and prepare dinner. That night he pitched his tent quicker than normal in a ‚Äúthis will be fine‚ÄĚ way, leading to the tent catching the wind and blowing away. O‚ÄôBrady chased after the tent only to become lost and unable to get back to his sled and supplies.
