Over the course of ten years, polar explorer and National Geographic grantee Børge Ousland and his expedition partner, Vincent Colliard, are crossing the world's 20 largest glaciers. As the accompanying video attests, pushing themselves to their physical limits amid some of the harshest landscapes on Earth won't keep these two adventurers from having a good time. Arctic ping-pong matches, epic sled races, and other good-natured battles between 52-year-old Ousland and 28-year-old Colliard are par for the course. #bestjobever
