Day 35 Trek to the South Pole

Mike rings from Lat 86°58.4' S and Lon 82°15.93'W.

At one stage the wind changed so I thought I would get out my kite. I changed my boots, took the skins off my skis and then the wind changed again. I wasted time arranging my equipment when I could have been moving!!! 782 kms done and 338kms to go!!"

In the meantime, Borge Ousland along with our two young explorers Clémence and Nicolas, are supposed to fly into Patriots Hills today. It seems unlikely they will fly today due to white-out conditions. The next flight leaving Punta Arenas will probably be on the 6th!
