Hot Stuff

 

Well I spent another day at the South Pole due to low wind conditions and a whiteout. Hopefully I will be on the move tomorrow.  As I mentioned yesterday the staff at the Amundsen – Scott base gave me a sensational tour of centre.  The centre includes about eleven high level scientific projects operating by about 9 scientists and about 240 support staff.  Nice ratio!!  It is a very tight knit community and I was able to visit their local shop, buy a few mementoes and get my passport stamp for the novelty.  It has also be fascinating spending the last couple of days with fellow expeditions who all have amazing experiences to share.  I spent plenty of time chatting with Sebastian Copeland and Eric McNair- Landry who have incredible adventure credentials.  Henry Worsley and Lou Rudd were also here who retraced the Amundsen route to the Pole.  Then Mark Wood arrived last night after doing the same trip as me.  All these events and new friendships are welcomed additions to the trip.
