South Pole solo
One Perfect Day
South: 89 29.634 West 58 18.688
Distance: 16.4 nautical miles
Weather: the perfect weather day
A perfect day for a walk. The sky is clear and the wind negligible. In fact it was pretty flat and I was all alone in this amazing dessert. For hours I travelled, listening to the sound of my ski’s on the snow, the sled being pulled behind me and my breathing. I thought much about home and all the special people who lived there.
I have to detour the way you access the pole through the US base camp and have about 30 nautical miles to go (see the picture below). I know the weather is forecast to change for the worst so today I enjoyed it for what it was.
