SCSU Grad Embarks on South Pole Trek [VIDEO]

Expedition to the South Pole

ANTARCTICA – A St. Cloud State University graduate is one member of a team of explorers trying to break a world record this week.

Jason Thomas and two other men are attempting to break the land speed record to the South Pole.  The current record is two-days, 21-hours, and 21-minutes.

They’re attempting the record this week because it’s the 100th anniversary of the first arrival to the South Pole.

Thomas, and the other two explorers, left on their journey at 7:30 a.m. our time this (Monday) morning.  The temperature was five-degrees above zero farenheit.

Thomas is not an explorer, he entered a contest and won the chance to take the trip. He graduated from SCSU in 1999.

Track their progress

Here’s a YouTube video of WJON’s Jim Maurice interviewing Thomas this summer:
