Monday, Day 4: Very little else in this world resembles what they go though right now. There is absolutely no sign of life at all. Everything is pristine white and clean. The snow is fantasticly sculptured in sastrugis. The sun is up 24 hours a day. The high pressure makes for a very cold environment. Outside it is minus 30°C, helped by a bit of wind we are talking between -40 and -50°C effective temperature.
But the enormous radiation from the sun in Antarctica makes the tent a very nice place. Inside it is +20° on the sunny side of the tent, and -5° on the other…
They did 23km today which was a new record again for Terry. He keeps surprising the two Norwegians with his enormous progress on skis. He is a transformed man. All those who saw him pull tires in the beaches and dirt roads around Perth should have seen him now.
36km to go! The are sure they will make in mid day on Wednesday. We will try to update live!
Stay tuned!View 1 comments
