In this July, 13, 2012 photo released by Shackleton Epic, expedition members pull their boat ashore on Elephant Island during their training. A modern-day team of six led by Tim Jarvis and Barry "Baz" Gray used similar equipment and clothes to re-enact a 1916 expedition led by Ernest Shackleton to save his crew after their ship got stuck in Antarctica’s icy waters. They reached an old whaling station on remote South Georgia island Monday, Feb. 11, 2013, 19 days after leaving Elephant Island. Just as Shackleton did in 1916, Jarvis and his team sailed 800 nautical miles across the Southern Ocean in a small lifeboat and then climbed over crevasse-filled mountains in South Georgia.
