w16sh, 28the magic is still there.

when exhausted humanity left trace of blood on snow and rock….

such is the case for artic exploration…and all it’s thrillllll and chillls ๐Ÿ˜€ย  david bowie crooned put on your red shoes and dance! oh no..when exhausted humanity left traces of blood on snow and rock. yet, shacklton fought to be there…well the uber popular southern version of it all.ย  admiral perry of the usa did up the north pole…ice capped arctic ocean anyways the same time roald ammundsen took out the glory of the south pole staked out for his norway.ย  yet not even three years later hardly were the stories of tragedy still pouring in…the karluck tried so and lost, shakleton bought the farm in antarctic exploration…complaining about his doctor…here he comes saying always I should give something up”ย  or something like that and alas he did…living.

yet so much of the conquering of this world hadn’t been done when the nation geographic had this address presented.ย  127 years of the magic of this world and we’ve just not ever ran out of it…

track seven : the scope and value of arctic expiditions…july, 1895. later included in nat geo’s j\anyary 1896 magazine.ย  somewhere about one and a half minutes in is the quote… I’m sorry I can’t stand it anymore lol… prompt over!

icebound: dr geri taylor is a fun book on the doctor whom had breast cancer at the south pole

icemasters – jennifer niven’sย  book on the karluk is a great book on the failed mission

various shows and books/journals of e. shackleton are out there on his south pole stuff

ed biersters has a bunch of everest books on the again paced life of living in the extreme climates…he was an/and still is likely an everest climber.

alexander von humboldt’s 1801 thru 1804 is a similar journey far before any here and lands the known world on it’s head with altitude records, meteorology and geology that later can predict hurricanes and vastly could have lol improved safety but there were some serious hiccups of people using their knowledge available.

marco polo while likely appocryphal is another tale of adventure far far away but it’s amusing to note more of why it’s appochryphalย  as in some of the simplest observations of china are?ย  tea is popular and the jerk drinks…no tea no mention anywhere ever of tea?ย  chump had a wind up in a prison cell spinnin a good yarn he did… nevermind he’s never mentioned by chinese scribes before during or after this book’s times… chinese kept dang good records.

 

anyways if you’ve not read your stevenson’s treasure island or mark twain’s huckleberry finn or london’s call of the wildย  or your favorite adventure books, step into these…and imagine how jules vern via reading about it in a magazine wrote 20,000 legues under the sea.ย  I’m not obviously so inspired but so what, get reading.

  1. All this learnin’ you’re teachin’ via your blog is makin’ my pea-brain hurt! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜› (Just teasin’!)
    Those books you mentioned sound like ones I’d like to read.
    I hope to see the movie Everest today. (Sunday)
    HUGS!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • each has something intriguing about it ๐Ÿ˜€ perhaps you can add the to the “list”

      • But, if I added to the list…then things would go downhill fast! Slippery-slope- fast right down into the gutter! ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ Ha! ๐Ÿ˜€

      • so then add fifty shades of grey again perhaps some live from golgotha vidal and just swim splish splash about in the bathing waters ๐Ÿ˜€

      • as i’m guessing it’s YOU who caught the first look at 32-335 notes, isn’t that an absolutely evil array of links? while i again didn’t read them all in any entirety thus have cheated my time allowed of one hour or less not “serious” research :D, if you do not have my scanning methodoligy, oh screwed you are! alll day it’ll take :D… ain’t THAT somewhat evil? or not cheating again the time it takes to research more accurately anything persay ๐Ÿ˜‰ the next listing is literally on my mind and isn’t all that wrong either ๐Ÿ˜‰ but will again take a bit of parsing to get through ๐Ÿ˜€ poor you. I wanted you to have a look at me trying to be close to scholarly practices and just off my head before I begin ๐Ÿ˜‰ and then see how I have to then more accurately list direct passage for footnoting at a later time which i remind you takes? crap if i did my research for school papers this way it’d take me about just as long to do it all over again correctly! citing is serious stuff i can of course as I have but it doesn’t look like THIS / these ๐Ÿ˜€ so long before this writing adventure is done oh god, I ‘ll proof one as a more to accepted practices “paper” and you’ll see why they’re asked to be done that way… somethings are time bandits… like how i think versus standardized practices ๐Ÿ˜‰ look for it, but until then you catch the fun of where it really leads me… which is a far different array of places.
