Polar Explorer Discovers Cheez Doodles in Cache

On the 86th of a 100-day solo South Pole cross­ing, Nor­we­gian explor­er Alek­sander Gamme checks his cache. Then…well, you’ll see what hap­pens. (You can jump to 0:55 if your curios­i­ty gets the bet­ter of your patience but I rec­om­mend watch­ing the entire thing.) Has any per­son ever been this excit­ed to see a bag of Cheez Doodles?

Gamme is not speak­ing Eng­lish in the video but that hard­ly mat­ters. Here’s what he says on Youtube about the event:

This is day 86 on my full return South Pole Expe­di­tion 2011/2012. I‘m quite hun­gry and about to pick up my last cache by my sec­ond pulk which I left on the way in. As a part of my moti­va­tion­al plan I have on pur­pose not made notes on what good­ies I have left behind in the cache.. and on this last one, I didn‘t expect very much..

I don’t even know what Cheez Doo­dles are but sud­den­ly I feel an over­whelm­ing desire to eat a bag or three.
