Their best day yet...

The team reported outstanding conditions today and great progress. With Dennis out front they covered 23.2 km in 10 hours of travel. They are feeling good about their progress. Bob, who has had a cold, is feeling better and getting stronger.

The day started with a wind but it abated and they were treated to spectacular weather that allowed them to eat outside for a second night. They all feel very lucky to have such good conditions.

Their current position is S 81.20.447, W 81.19.496

For history buffs you may be interested to know that 100 years ago today Amundsen had the opposite weather... "Have gone completely blind all day. Breeze from N with thick fog and snowfall."

Make sure to listen to Lisa's audio update below and check back again tomorrow for another update from the team!
