Default Woz drives to South Pole in a Hummer

Quote:
The Woz said he plans to drive to the South Pole in a Hummer in 2007. He said that in passing, and it seemed so absurd that I had to find out more. So after his talk, I went up and asked. Woz explained that he was participating in an expedition planned for December 2007 in which a group will drive Hummers running on hydrogen powered fuel cells from McMurdo Station to the South Pole. Woz said his particular vehicle would be co-piloted by Buzz Aldrin, who walked on the moon in 1969. The expedition is to be filmed in 3D for the director James Cameorn. Woz said that the group has received important advice on the project from the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authroity, which has been running some hydrogen fuel-cell powered buses.

For those that don't know, The Woz = Steve Wozniak (co-founder of Apple Computer and eccentric genius). About 15-16 years I got a chance to meet him when he threw a huge housewarming party and my family was invited (my mom did his banking). Really cool guy!

Sound like a great adventure. Haven't heard about the Woz in a long time. A historical valley icon. But I'm old enough to remember meeting Bushnell at Atari while working there when I was in college.
