Hi everyone. Good visibility today, but still making my way through this powdery snow which is making the pulk feel heavy. But I’m doing ok and I’m taking it a day at a time
This post goes to the expeditions on the ice right now.
The team of six serving or ex serving Australian Defence Force members who you can follow at www.thespiritlivesantarctica.com (@thespiritlivesantarctica) are aiming to ski just over 1100 miles.
Antarctica 2023 (@antarctica 2023) a team of two doctors, Gareth Andrews and Richard Stephenson are skiing 2023km, aiming to achieve the longest ever unsupported ski crossing of Antarctica.
Inspire 22 (@antarctic_inspire_22) who are aiming to explore the metabolic cost of sustained polar travel and they are skiing over 900km.
Omar Di Felice (@omardifelice) who is aiming to conduct the longest cycling journey across the South Pole.
Ben Weber (@bweber360) who is skiing 700 miles solo to the South Pole.
And Caroline Cote (@caro.line.cote) and Wendy Searle (@betweensnowandsky) who are both skiing the 700 miles solo to the South Pole and aiming for the speed record too.
There are quite a few expeditions this year and I dont know them all, so feel free to mention any I have missed. That’s all for tonight.
