Parker Liautaud went south this winter—as far south as you can get.
The 19-year-old Yale University student usually takes things as far as he can. The overachieving geophysics major touched base with "Squawk on the Street" on Thursday from somewhere in Antarctica, where he's trying to ski the remaining 200 miles from the Leverett Glacier to the South Pole.
It's his first time to the South Pole. He's been to the North Pole three times before his current trek, according to the Willis Resilience Expedition. But minus 40 degree temperatures remain something he can't get used to.
"It feels like you just want to move around," Liautaud said. "What it really feels like, it's just raw. It's not something you ever get used to."
