Interesting expedition. more important mission...

Heard this on PRI's the World.
I love it, history and whiskey. I can't think of anything else you might need.

"A team from New Zealand is planning to set out in January for Antarctica.

The team’s mission is to visit the site of an old hut. The explorer Ernest Shackleton had it built about a century ago. The hut still stands.

It looks out on the iceberg-clogged waters of McMurdo Sound and beyond to the Ross Sea. And believe it or not, under the hut, frozen in the ice for over 100 years… are 2 cases of Scotch whiskey!"

More Here... Listen to the audio!
