Day 32 Trek to the South Pole

What a crazy day! White-out conditions with strong gusts and the worse snow conditions ever! Pulling my sled felt like I was pulling it through wet concrete! I was exhausted by the end of the day and noticed that I only advanced 23 kms!

Today, the 1st of January 2009, already promises to be better. The weather seems to have cleared and the wind has died down.

Hope you all have a wonderful day and best wishes for 2009! Mike

Another tiring day!!!

" I walked the whole day yesterday and stopped after having done 28 kms – What a day!!
The wind was very strong and of course blew at me head-on for the entire day. As well as that, I had to pull the
sled through very soft deep snow.

"I think I only slept for four hours so I'm very tired today!
I'll see how I go today and if I do not advance as I would like I may think about putting down another cache"

Seems that Borge, Clémence and Nicolas must still be waiting in Punta Arenas as I have not had any news from them.
I hope they'll be able to fly soon, as I hate to think of them loosing days out here.
It might be hard work but the experience is well worth it."
