485 words - 2 pages

In June of 1988, Jim Johnson, a wealthy businessman and adventure seeker, decided to embark on a quest for the bottom of the world. He informed the Guinness Book of World Records that he was planning to set a record by navigating his way from the Antarctic coast to the South Pole within two months. On his journey, he was accompanied by three of his close friends: Tom Brewer, Jerry Seinfeld, and Sammy Stone.

Eventually, the ice got so thick the ship had to stop.The team of explorers unloaded their cargo and began their trek to the South Pole. About a day into their voyage, the group ran into an ice mountain. Jim Johnson decided they should attempt to carve their way through the mountain instead of adding days onto their trip by trying to go around it. As the group hacked through the ice, Sammy lost his footing and slipped, falling 20 feet shattering his left elbow. Sally, a former emergency medical technician, put a splint on his arm to prevent further injury.Once they reached the top of the wall of ice they realized that the mountain they were climbing was in fact the side a huge ice plateau. With their new vantage point, they could see something in the distance. As they closed in on this object, they discerned that there were multiple flags sticking out of the ice. There were flags from England, Russia, America, and Spain. They determined that the flags were from other Antarctic explorers who made the same journey to the bottom of the earth.In the end, the adventure seekers found what they were looking for. After a week and a half of blood, pain, and sweat in the blistering cold, they had finally conquered the elements. They went up against the best Earth had to offer and won. They raised their arms in triumph as they stood at the bottom of the world.
