Update Pax Arctica ‘On the Shoulders of Shackleton’ Expedition 2014

- Getting ready every day: equipment, satellite communications, drone piloting, seasickness medication, etc.

 - En route to Chamonix on Sunday for pre-expedition team building and bonding around melted cheese ;)

Meanwhile, 100 years ago, Shackleton was feverishly preparing his Endurance expedition, the First Battle of the Marne in France was being fought and the German advance on Paris was halted.
