The Thiel Mountains are now about 40 kms to the left of me. I can see tracks leading to the mountains so I imagine there is some kind of depot there. I have also crossed tracks of two other people, sometimes they're on skis and other times they are walking. They seem to be two days ahead of me. I would love to know who they are. It's interesting to see other peoples tracks for a change. Even though I haven't seen a soul since the 4 weeks I have been out here, it's strange to know that I'm not alone," says Mike.
