Topic - Help-Expedition advice and help requires(arctic)

L Kieran B - on 12 Aug 2014

I'm a 17 year old boy, and i'm looking to do a south pole expedition, a long one, i understand some take 100 days and over, and i'm willing todo that, i want advice on things like, are there people who do it(professionals) to aid me, how much is the average weight pulled by a person assuming they're going for a long period of time, i'm assuming i can't do it at the age of 17 for health and safety reason and as a result will be looking to do it next year around this time(if it's within the walking season in that area), how much does it cost roughly, i would hoping to have funding to help me as i'm in full time education, this wouldn't get in the way of the expedition however. Any additional information on things would be extremely helpful, any links i can read up on too would be very grateful, kind regards EDIT:Iv'e had previous walking experience, climbed to Everest base camp when i was 16:)And also climbed the mountains/hills in the Brecon beacons several times, nothing compared to what i'm inquiring about, i know, still some experience however.
