44 Miles from the South Pole
We’re on the Polar Plateau. Yesterday we did about ten miles in eight hours and today we did nearly 11 miles in eight hours and now we’re only 44 miles away from the South Pole so hopefully we’ll reach the Pole by Friday 9th (which we were meant to). We got put back two days but we’re making up time at the moment. It’s been very hot and sunny with blue skies, not much wind, but still about minus 35. Today my back is quite sore from pulling my sledge but I managed to finish the day and its feeling much better. I finished my munchy bags today so I had enough energy to keep going. I’m just in the tent now at the end of the day. I’ve just had some soup and am about to have dinner now.
