Day 12 Trek to the South Pole
In his tent last night, Mike prepared his skis by gluing skins down the entire length. Today he'll try and see if it will help him advance at a faster pace. If this does not work he'll need to continue with his crampons – he thinks at least for another 5-6 days!
Mike is walking on relatively flat terrain but until today he has only climbed up to 900 meters – he still has another 2000 to go!!!
It's 7h45 (Chilean time) when we speak and Mike is eager to get walking. "I should reach the Pole in another 35 days, but enough speaking for now – I better get a move on!!!"
