Nearing 88 degrees...

Today the team reports good progress having skied 25.6 kilometers closer to the Pole. They had good conditions with very little wind and some cloud coverage that hid the sun for a portion of the day. They have seen additional tracks in the snow, which they cannot identify. It is a mystery!

As the team approaches the pole they will come across more tracks. It's always exciting to see these after being alone on the ice for so long. As you ski along you wonder who these people were, and where they came from, and how long ago the tracks were made, and will they be at the Pole?

The team's position tonight is S 87.55.565, W 83.09.759. Tomorrow they will pass 88 degrees, a very big milestone! Make sure to listen to BB's audio update and check back again tomorrow for another update from the team.
