The above quote by Elgen Long reflects his determination to accomplish his personal goals. When Elgen was the first to solo across the continent of Antarctica, he pushed through temperatures of thirty-three below zero. His heater failed on the way to the South Pole, and it would be eight cold hours later before he would land safely on the ice runway at McMurdo Sound.

During the 1970s when conspiracy theories circled the Amelia Earhart mystery, Elgen Long and his wife, Marie, set out to discover the truth. Elgen's aviation expertise (and his own experience from flying around the world, setting fifteen world records and firsts) told him that the most probable explanation for her disappearance lay in the navigation and communications surrounding Earhart’s last flight. After over thirty-five years of research, Elgen and Marie plotted the most likely area where Earhart would have ditched her Lockheed Electra. Already the search has begun.
