Jim and Yvonne Claypole have recently returned from a truly remarkable year in Antarctica where they lived in a tiny hut chained to rocks in one of the coldest and most isolated spots on earth. Before Jim and Yvonne's year of living with extreme cold, horrendous blizzards and diminishing daylight began they found that they had captivated the interest of the Australian media and had a following of millions of people throughout the country. Many thought that they were crazy, others loved their spirit of adventure and determination to follow their life-long dream. Despite the isolation, technology enabled them to receive e-mails from thousands of well wishers, many of whom were readers hooked to Yvonne's hugely popular weekly articles in the New Idea magazine. Everyone was fascinated by her descriptions of their lives in tiny Gadget Hut and the way that they tackled the problems of day-to-day living on the frozen continent. they laughed with them as the elastic in Yvonne's underwear perished with the cold, and shared their fear and isolation as the blizzards threatened to tear Gadget hut apart and they were plunged into 24-hour darkness.
