Almost there

Published 26.12 in category South Pole Last Degree 2013

Penultimate day of the expedition consisted, as most other, of seven sessions, one hour each. A total of nineteen kilometers, most of it uphill today. On the fifth session we could already see in the horizon some of the buildings on the South Pole base. But the last eleven kilometers must wait until the Amundsen-Scott base opens.
Conditions have been fine with 21 degrees below freezing and sunny all day ! So it is fairly nice and cold out down there.
But inside the tent it is a different world . Tonight we  measured 35 degrees at night, and we had to sleep with legs outside the sleeping bag to cool them down . It does not feel  like the Pole !
