An Extreme Encounter free pdf If a plunger and mop gave him a ticket to the ice continent, so be it. Nothing short of a seat in the cargo hold of a Star Lifter transport plane would stop Frosty Wooldridge and his appointment with destiny in Antarctica. Resolved that taking a job as a house keeper was the only way to reach the bottom of the world, Wooldridge set off on an adventure that even Walter Mitty couldn't have imagined. Following in the footsteps of Amundsen, Scott and Shackleton, Wooldridge steps into the Antarctic landscape, culture and environment with the keen eyes of an explorer in a benignly cruel, frozen land. Within days of landing at McMurdo Station, Wooldridge sets off on the first of many assignments as the Antarctic Sun's sole reporter. Trudging across the polar plateau, Wooldridge shares his authentic wit, wisdom and perspective through the lens of a man entranced by an unforgiving frozen desert. He carries readers into the vagaries of people living on the ice-their foibles, personalities and dreams. "An Extreme Encounter" transports readers into the bowels of million year old glaciers, katabatic winds, to the tops of smoking volcanoes, scuba diving under the ice, wacky people, death, outlaw activities and rare moments where he meets penguins, whales, seals and Skua birds. Hang on to your seatbelts-you're in for a wild ride where the bolt goes into the bottom of the globe. A world class explorer whose bicycle journeys are unrivaled in the world of extreme cycling, Wooldridge brings a quest for adventure and genuine love for both hardship and challenges on the road of life. Armchair travelers are forewarned: This tale will leave you lost in dreams of following the footsteps of explorers throughoutthe ages. Sandy Colhoun, former editor-in-chief, The Antarctic Sun
