Day 48 Trek to the South Pole
They have the advantage of having lighter sleds than mine so are able to move at a faster pace. As usual my heavy sled sinks into the soft snow. For me it doesn't change a lot as I'm progressing at my usual pace. Yesterday I did 27 kms and met up with Borge, Clémence and Nicolas at the end of the day. They walked for 10 hours and because I was slower, I needed another 2 hours to cover the same distance. Today we have 76 more kms to walk so we'll arrive at the Pole in three days time!"
While Mike, Borge, Clémence and Nicolas are progressing well on the ice, things are still happening at the selection camp in Switzerland.
