Georgie(who is this guy?)

South Pole solo

Go Santa!

South 85 54.100  West 81 13.627

Distance:  15.6 nautical miles
Time: 9.5 hrs
Weather: beautiful…fingers crossed for tomorrow it is the same
When I went to the North Pole I searched long and hard for Santa but I just couldn’t continue to spend time looking for his home and factories where all the toys are made.  But tonight I am going to keep a watchful eye over the sky just incase he flies over the south pole on his way to deliver all the presents to good kids fast asleep.
Kids remember to be super good today, go to bed early, and wake up to a big surprise tomorrow.
My children have asked Santa to leave me a present at the South Pole, I can’t wait to get there to get it.
Song of the Day:  Santa Claus is Coming to Town

    As we get ready to see the smiles on our kids faces, we trust these messages will put one on yours. Enjoy a white christmas. I hope the winds are soft , the snow hard and your determination focused.
    The Inverloch crew will be your Christmas fruit cake – Some mixed nuts, some fruity and some soaked in alcohol. Combined a wonderful cake that are your friends and are behind you all the way.
    Merry Christmas.
