We are 53kms away from the South Pole! Two more days to go.

-32degC and clear skies today. We skied uphill almost all day in soft snow chasing an unreachable horizon. We’re camped on the side of a steep hill this evening surrounded by sastrugi which popped up to hamper the last 5kms of the day. We’re not expecting conditions to get much better now, we’re just excited to get on with it and reach the pole in 2 days time.
