Day 6 Trek to the South Pole

Progression is slowly getting easier for Mike but his sled is still very heavy. Today he walked 16kms before stopping to pitch his tent. After 6 days on the ice he has already walked over 100kms (65miles) and climbed 890 meters of altitude.

He is finding the cold of the Antarctic quite different to that of the North Pole. The dry air makes the cold temperatures more supportable and surprisingly enough his hands and feet warm up nicely while he is walking!

He is sounding great – obviously happy about the improving conditions! Another 5 oclock start tomorrow so its time for him to rest.
