Nilson : being sick of his trek

Published on 15.01.2012 - Climate Neutral Pole 2 Pole

Johan Ernest Nilson and his companion announce that they have another five days to cover to reach South Pole.

They also have had a problem with the fuel which was spilled all over one of the sled. No word of explanation, but their food has been contaminated.

Their last audio dispatch said that they were moving allright (100 kil done on 10 January) but stucked sometimes because of the weather.

They announced another 5 days to reach the SP. And seem to want to get rid of the voyage as soon as possible.
