Every evening whilst the guys were out on the ice, they would read part of Shackleton's 'The Heart of the Antarctic' - his account of the Nimrod Expedition. Doing so, the guys were able to get a much fuller picture of what was involved, and what the original team members went through.

Will: "We found it very interesting - we got a real feel for what they went through on a daily basis and were left overwhelmed by their extraordinary courage - doing what no one had done before, and going to places that hadn't been seen before, makes it all the more important that we finish what they started."
