Day 23 Trek to the South Pole

 His position this morning when he rang was Lat 84°18.4' S Lon 80°38.6' W.

Yesterday Mike did another 27kms and he is now past the 84°latitude and also past half the distance to the South Pole.

Mike can now see the Thiel Mountains rising about 100kms away in the distance.

Conditions remain variable, one minute sunny, one minute cloudy which is a little frustrating at times as he must stop frequently to adjust his clothing.

Mike is alone for Christmas but is thinking of his family and friends. He sends his seasons greeting to each and everyone and best wishes for an adventurous and joyful New Year!
