Day 56 Trek to the South Pole

It was after 10 hours or so that the ice became more uneven and the sastrugi's started appearing. I needed to change my kite to a smaller, slower one. With the slower kite I was travelling about 10kms an hour and after 13-14 hours of kiting I stopped at 87°45 S and 82°27 W. I had done 220 kms so I was feeling pretty proud of myself!!!

Now I've had a few hours sleep and am ready to start a second day of kiting. I wonder if I didn't stop in a sheltered spot because there doesn't seem to be any wind where I am. I'll try and move and see if I cannot get the wind back in my sails again. Regards to you all."
