Philippine South Pole Expedition

By Eddie Alinea

15 Jun 2010

Four months from now, a Filipino golf instructor, a lifestyle coach and an extreme outdoor sportsman, will try to become the first man from this country to conquer South Pole’s ‘Ice Forest.’

Bobby Castillo, a quintessential Climate changer, will walk his way for 1,170 kilometers through the Antarctic in sub-human conditions like an average minus 50 degrees day-to-day and headwinds ranging from 80 to 100 kilometers per hour.
His purpose in the project called South Pole Expedition 2010: to dramatically deliver the prayer petitions of the entire Filipino nation as the country’s share in the world-wide efforts for climate change.

To accomplish the feat, of reaching the South Pole’s geographical center, Coach Bobby needs to pull a 150-kilo sled and be on ski for seven hours a day, make do with Katabatic winds, crevices, sastrugis (ridges of snow formed on a snowfield by the action of the winds) and snow storm.
His target, he said during Friday’s SCOOP Sa Kamayan weekly session, is to reach the peak in less than 33 days, which is the existing world record.

“We, in the climate change movement, know that what we will be doing is alien to the rest of us Filipinos, but sooner or later, we have to do our share in the universal efforts for climate change because the Philippines happens to be in the middle of the problems crated by nations that largely contribute to greenhouse gases like the U.S. and China, project director Barbie Abrogar who along with Nacho Rivera was with Del Castillo as guests, said.
‘And we Filipinos being known world-wide as prayerful people, we decided to do our share through that medium which we have proven very effective during the 1986 EDSA Revolution when we summoned Divine Intervention to drive away the dictatorship and bring back democracy to the nation,” Del Castillo butted in.

“If we succeeded in doing it at EDSA I, why not for climate change through our individual prayer petitions? he said.
Del Castillo and company called on the Filipinos to log on to www.lifex. ph to submit their prayer petitions which Del Castillo, in turn, will deliver by way of the South Pole Expedition.
If he succeeds reaching his destination, Del Castillo said he will plant the Philippine flag in the peak’s vicinity where it will stay there along with 13 other national colors earlier planted.

To proceed with the project, Del Castillo said, he and the Climate changers movement will be needing P13 million which Abrogar said the group will try to generate through several fund-raising projects.
She said a benefit concert will be held on June 26 at the Discovery Suites Frontage for that purpose.

Del Castillo said he will be flying to New Zealand by September to resume the tough extensive training he has been undergoing for the past year. It is from New Zealand where the trek starts going to Chile then to Antarctic.
