I am still doing a regular 27 kms a day. The terrain, sometimes covered with sastrugi and other days not. The weather sometime clear, sometimes not. It's very hard to predict how the day will turn out. Instead one just has to take it as it comes.
I've now done 566 kms and have another 554kms to do until I reach the pole. I have to keep up this pace if I want to arrive on the Pole by the 16th – so no rest day yet!!
Hope all my friends are well. Thanks for all the Christmas messages!!"
