Norwegian Gjeldnes has made long-distance ski expeditions his forte. In 1996 he, along with fellow Norwegian Torre Larsen, completed an unsupported ski crossing of the Arctic Ocean, 109 days, 2,100 kilometers, thus becoming the first to cross the Arctic Ocean without resupply. In 2005-06, Gjeldnes completed “The Longest March”, a three-month 4,800 kilometer solo ski trek across Antarctica, via the South Pole, becoming the first person to cross that part of the continent alone and without being resupplied. This is a nice companion book to Rune’s ‘Dead Men Walking’ and is very similar to Borge Ousland’s books.
