Extreme weather, extreme equipment
Mike Horn's New Zealand-born wife Cathy manages the logistics, nutrition and communication for his expeditions from their base at Les Moulins in Switzerland. Horn stays in touch via a satellite telephone, which, during the Arktos expedition, he used to co
-ordinate meeting up with members of the logistics team at eight locations to collect different modes of transport and rations.
Horn will wear a specially designed Panerai wristwatch
for navigation at the Pole. Conventional compasses don't work because of the high level of magnetism, and electronic navigators become useless at minus 11C because the liquid crystal display simply freezes. The watch has an alloy jacket and an internal iron case to protect the movement from the effects of magnetism, and it is lubricated by a blend of oils that will not clog at extreme temperatures. Using a combination of the time, compass points on the watch, and the occasionally visible winter sun, Horn and Ousland will be able to plot their course. The pair will carry their gear on Kevlar sledges designed by Ousland.
