NOW I’LL NEVER GET HIRED BY NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC
If you have been following this blog, you will notice that on several occasions, I have said that Shackleton left his men on Elephant Island and went to King George Island. Wrong!
King George is an island in the S. Shetlands that we will pass tomorrow or the next day but that’s not where Shackleton went to save his men.
He had to travel 800 miles from Elephant Island but it was northeast to SOUTH GEORGIA island.
