74 days, 2045km. A lot of new records set. 45km in 18hrs the last day...
A lot more on the blog in the days to come. (Text-pics) just have to sleep a little first...
Thanks to all of you who have followed the blog.
Cheers from Are
One hell of a day!
Very mixed conditions, both weather and surface. From soft deep snow to huge sastrugies, we have been skiing alongside the mountains all day, and it has been so good to rest the eyes at something.
We did 44,8kms today, so that leaves us with “only” 43,9kms to go. We are very much looking forward to end this expedition in style tomorrow. Unfortunately the weather is supposed to be not good; very cloudy, very windy and very cold, so I doubt we will be picked up by the "pick-up plane" tomorrow, but you never know!Fingers crossed. One long haul to go.
Stay tuned and share on Facebook.
Soon we will make history..!
Going up?!?!? To 815m above sea level. Antarctica never stop surprising.
Sidewind of 12 m/sec most of the day, calming down in the evening. Surface soft, drifted snow, this means relentless hard work. Exhausting!
43,5km in 12hrs skiing. 86,5km left to Hercules Inlet.
The team is weak, tired and hungry now. Give us strength.
Have seen the Mountains both to the west and north all day. Perhaps Patriot Hills? Lars, what do you think?
Nice to have something to look at...
Whiteout and sastrugis, you know...What to say? 35km in 11h.30min.
Did not see more then 3m the intire day.
Pretty frustrating, but nothing to do about it. Just have to keep on working hard to get to Hercules Inlet on the 26 of January.
It means that we have to average 43.5km for four days. It is indeed possible, even though tomorrow is gonna be whiteout again.
Weather clearing on Saturday.
Jeg vil hilse til mor mi. Takk for at du følger med på bloggen. Glad i deg!
Weather better then expected today, which gave the opportunity to go back to plan A, and the usual schedule.
46,5km today and 253km to go!
Are, and team :)
Took half a rest-day today due to weather conditions. Then we did 24,1 km in very poor visibility in the afternoon. Supposedly the weather will stay shitty for at least the next two days. Whiteout. Exactly what we do not need right now....
Stay tuned for more fun from Antarctica in the next episode off "The weather fighters"
