After camping right on the edge of Berkner Island last night, this morning we smoothly transitioned onto the Ronne Filchner Ice Sheet. A couple of broad undulations in the surface marked deep pressure ridges beneath our feet as the ice sheet buckled up against the Island but they didn’t cause us any trouble and we’re now well off shore with the vaguest hint of the Pensacola mountains on the far side smudging the horizon 170km ahead.
