Crevasses were a constant source of danger for men and machines in their epic journey through the Antarctic WinterNot the recommended way to park a D6N overnight.

Crevasses were a constant source of danger for men and machines in their epic journey through the Antarctic Winter

“This was completely new territory for everyone involved and our ultimate goal as engineers was to delivery the whole team and equipment back safe and sound, so it is fantastic to have achieved this.

“Throughout the journey I think we have become one with virtually every part of Rover and Seeker and alert to the tiniest of differences in performance. Faced with a constant battle against the elements, you also realise that snow and ice is relentless and finds the tiniest of gaps to fill, meaning we have had a constant battle on our hands, throughout the journey.

“We are both now in a unique position to share our experiences with others and in particular our fellow engineers across the whole Finning and Caterpillar businesses. The knowledge that we have gained will certainly make a difference to the future of plant equipment development and most importantly the safety of the engineers that maintain it.

“We are both quite sad to leave such an amazing place, but are very excited about the future and can’t wait to thank everyone that has helped us make this journey possible. These experiences are once in a lifetime opportunities and we have both felt privileged to take part.”

Flown out of the Princess Elisabeth Antarctic station, Richmond and Spencer will have to wait a number of months before they will be reunited with their machines as they will make the journey back to the UK by boat.

Richmond added: ‘”I know I speak for both of us when I say that being part of something that has raised so much money for a charity like ‘Seeing is Believing’ that gives the gift of sight, is very humbling. We both hope to do more to raise awareness for the charity and hope to push the overall total beyond $2m.

Still time to donate
