After a day of clear skies and little wind, with views across the bergs and sea ice of the Weddell Sea, today was a very different challenge. Poor visibility, drifting snow, -13.5deg C and 40 knot winds which makes it feel much colder. We only managed 10kms, uphill through deep snow. We are happy though, we knew it would be a slow start. Only 1999kms to go! We’ve also started our scientific measurements and as I write this Rich is hanging out the door of the tent taking the readings.
