The journey into the unknown is a journey to self.
But her journey began on the 6th of December 2018: a solo, unsupported, and unassisted adventure, on her feet and on her skis, from the Antarctic coast to the South Pole. Jenny Davis was ready.
Ahead of her, 715 miles she planned to cover in less than 38 days, 23 hours and 5 minutes, in order to break a Guinness World Record set by a previous explorer. On the sled she would pull, over 170 pounds heavy, she had clothes, food, water, a tent, a sleeping bag, backup gear, first aid supplies; all that she would need, she hoped, to survive the multiweek polar trek. But this story began far before:
That urge, that readiness to go, would surface on weekends and at random moments. Midweek she was a London based corporate lawyer. After hours, she camped and surfed along the West Coast of Scotland, cycled, ran half marathons and triathlons, and in 2009 climbed Mount Kilimanjaro on an unsupported expedition.
