Chicken Tikka 64 miles from South Pole
It is Day 6 of our trek to the South Pole. Today we walked for seven hours and did 8. 8 nautical miles so we’re only 64 miles away from the Pole. Tomorrow we’ll do 8 or hopefully 10 miles so we will maybe get there in a week.
It was quite sunny to start with today so it was really warm but this afternoon the cloud came in and it got colder. The tent is also a lot colder as no sun is bringing the heat in. My shoulders are aching a lot and I’m starting to get blisters on my feet.
As we walk the floor sinks down and makes a big noise you can hear for miles which is really quite scary. We’re just having dinner at the moment: chicken tikka with rice which isn’t very nice but we have to eat it just to have the energy for tomorrow.
