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.
