Special Challenge

Coca-Cola Zero partnered with Metallica for the Freeze'em All challenge and provided a unique and never-to-be-topped 10-day experience to all of the contest winners and the scientists from research stations throughout Antarctica. During the 12-day visit to Antarctica, the band stayed for 4 days aboard Ortelius with fans and crew. As Rock-it Cargo and the crew started packing up to begin the journey back to Ushuaia, they discovered that an iceberg had fallen into the bay during their stay in Antarctica. Carefully avoiding bus-sized ice chunks made for an interesting load-out.
