Strange sounds and lots of wind...

Today the team reports wind, and lots of it! Now THIS is the kind of weather they were expecting from Antarctica (but it doesn't mean they have to like it!) Dennis, in his wonderful audio update mentions that his beard froze to his ruff while he was setting up his tent, and that it often felt like the wind was pushing him back one step for every two he took forward. A challenging day to be sure, but they managed to put 22 kilometers behind them.

Dennis also mentions a very strange sound and explains what frightened them so much that they almost jumped out of their skins. I'll let him tell the story... and if you aren't able to pick up the audio file you can email me for the full report.

Not much else to report tonight, other than the team is doing well. They love the support and questions they receive from everyone. We did not get specific coordinates (the sat phone cut out) but we will post them when we get them.

Enjoy the update from Dennis, and Happy 60th (!!!) wedding anniversary to his in laws! Check back again tomorrow for another update from the team!
