During my first conversation with Jim, last century, I was impressed by his quiet confidence and solid enthusiasm. Since then, I have come to learn the determination, dexterity, skills and knowledge of Jim and the crew behind the project and am delighted to be associated with them. Ice Warrior has all the potential of a truly great British First. Slightly mad and eccentric in conception, thorough and precise in planning and likely to prove ingenious and resolved in execution.

The  terrain  is  exceptionally  hostile  and  dangerous, but  I  am  confident  that  Jim  and  his  team  will  be successful not only in reaching the elusive pole; but in conducting an environmentally vital transect of the Arctic Ocean; for as Ernest Shackleton said “difficulties are just things to overcome

Learning to travel the hard way is not only the best way, but it’s also the most memorable. I greatly admire all of you for having a go - believe me you won’t forget the experience. Good luck.

What Jim McNeill and his team are doing is pioneering of the most advanced kind. Just as Cancer Research UK is genuinely pioneering new ways to treat cancer; what he is planning pushes man beyond the boundaries and will take him to the most inaccessible places on Earth.

We all think that the world has been “discovered” and there are few areas that mankind has not reached.

This is not so and project’s like Jim McNeill’s Ice Warrior Project serves to explore these extremes and push back the boundaries of our knowledge as well as the limits of those who take part.

As an expeditioner myself, I am delighted to encourage and support such worthwhile endeavour, undertaken not by experts but by trained amateurs under the careful leadership of Jim. I wish them the very best of luck.

To Jim and all the Ice Warrior Team. I know how hard training can be, but push on, you will find it is worth it!

Jim McNeill is a true, 'old school’ adventurer, living the life we all dreamed of living as youngsters, but the huge difference between Jim and the rest of us is that he never stopped at the dreaming stage. He faces his greatest challenge now. Climate Change Awareness
