These guys had an epic expedition out on the Antarctic continent with temps as low as -70F, winds up to 125mph, and altitudes above 9,000 feet.
Grant Korgan is an avid snowmobiler, skier, world-class kayaker, adventurer, nanomechanics professional and husband. On March 5, 2010, while snowmobiling in the Sierra backcountry, the Lake Tahoe native fractured his L1 vertebrae, and suddenly added the world of spinal cord injury recovery to his list of activities.
