One Day to Go!

Great going!

2011 LOGOSaturday / Day 18: All smiles today. The 35,6km just evaporated as they had a great day. The terrain changed as they got a bit further down, with lots of small clusters of sastugi. It made for fun and interesting walking.

Now they have just 38km left. They stick to their regime and plan 100%, refusing to push hard just to get there, The South Pole is a huge goal, – but in reality just a halfway mark. Risking anything just to get there a bit faster would be deviating from Polar handicraft which is ‘never leave a winning theme. It’s all about rhythm, routine, a strict timetable and rest.

Only Trond will leave the team here and go back. It will be sad to see him leave. Pretty sure he will de overjoyed to bag the Pole, but sad not to continue what has been an incredible adventure. – Though at Jæren in Norway they will be both proud and happy.
