Meet an adventurer who’s aiming to be the first woman to walk solo and unsupported to the South Pole. Emma Baker joins Jen Crook and Haggis the dog for the first day of a training walk that will take them the length of Scotland. A snow blizzard makes the conditions suitably polar! Next, Sandy McCracken goes on a much more comfortable trek – around the Dumfries Art Trail. He discovers why Arts projects are an important boost to the local economy… and meets a modern day Viking. If you would like to follow Jen's journey, you can visit her website. http://jencrook.com/scottish-adventure---the-winter-slog.php
