A journey to the bottom of the world
Antarctica is no place for the faint-hearted; it is a perilous icy desert of extreme cold, hidden crevasses and unrelenting physical hardship.
In 100 years of polar exploration no-one had ever walked from the edge of Antarcticato the South Pole and back without any support. Many had tried. None had succeeded. Until, on 26th January 2012, James Castrission (Cas) and Justin Jones (Jonesy) made history by completing the longest unsupported polar journey of all time.
Following in the footsteps of the great polar explorers like Scott, Amundsen, Shackleton and Mawson, they battled frostbite, physical and mental breakdown, starvation, blizzards and crevasse falls. After 89 gruelling days they made it back to the coast more dead than alive.
Like Robert F Scott, a Norwegian had pushed them harder than they thought possible. But, unlike Scott, in a dramatic twist this Norwegian, Aleks Gamme, taught them lessons decades of adventure had not.
Extreme South – the book
|EXTREME SOUTH is the inspiring story of two Australian adventurers who realised an almost impossible dream. With honesty and humour, James Castrission outlines their preparation, the rich history of past explorers who inspired their efforts and takes us on their daring expedition, showing what can be achieved through hard work, tenacity and mateship.
Crossing the Ice documentary
| The DVD is loaded with an extended version of the documentary (TV stations will get a shorter version) and tonnes of features including deleted scenes, bloopers and expedition videos.
Two mates, a kayak, and the conquest of the Tasman.
With more than 2000 km of treacherous seas and dangerously unpredictable weather and currents, it was little wonder no-one had successfully crossed the Tasman by Kayak. Two young Sydney-siders, James Castrission and Justin Jones, reach the sand at New Plymouth – and a place in history – on the 13th of January 2008, 62 days after they’d set off from Foster on the mid-north coast of NSW.
Crossing The Ditch – The Book
“… nothing prepared them for the 62 days of rapture, despair and euphoria … ultimately this is a story of the triumph of the human spirit.”
“This is the gripping and inspirational account of two ordinary blokes…double handedly proving that the Age of Adventure is not over!”
Excerpt from the ‘Crossing the Ditch’ Documentary
“At first you ask ‘Why’? Why do some individuals risk everything to test the boundaries of endurance? Like all great stories this one offers answers. Through its humour and tears, its aspirations, perils, follies and ultimate triumph we learn what it is to be human. That, together, we negotiate the chaos of the world by relying on the better, more heroic, parts of ourselves.”
