    'This is a very great adventure, I mean it's going to last a very long time. I think about ... from the adventure side people should not move from A to B and do nothing and they have been taking a great deal of trouble, the men who are playing their part in, - to undertake various scientific projects...



    'With all the sponsors involved, exploring is obviously a very big business these days?'



    'Of course yes, travellers, explorers, they all need equipment, it's becoming shall we say a popular pastime throughout the world and all the sponsors which are supporting this expedition will....so there is something in it for them as well.
