Just hearing the audio from this video by expeditioner Aleksander Gamme made me smile and laugh out loud. Gamme and the story behind this video was featured on an episode of RadioLab back last winter; the episode is titled “Bliss.”
The video is part of a diary Gamme created while on a months-long trek through the South Pole in 2011 and 2012––day 86 of his journey. Gamme had left a series of supply caches for himself on the first leg of his journey, and in the video, he’s just come across his last cache as he makes his way back to civilization. He’s very hungry and has no idea what’s in the cache.
So, when was the last time you were this happy?
