Better weather helps the guys out

Published on 22.11.2011 - Cas & Jonesy : Crossing the Ice

After a quite bad start of the week with some equipment malfunctions, things started to improve a bit.

After a bad weather comes the sunshine ; it's even true in the Antarctic. Last week end it has stopped snowing and, direct consequence, the ground is firming up, although soft snow still makes the pulks difficult to pull. The wind also has decreased down to 15-25 km/h together with the temperatures of course ; all this has definitively helped the guys out.

But after three weeks on the ice (they have started on 31 Octobre) and having endured so many heavy and stressing conditions on the ice, their bodies are starting to ache. But despite all these setbacks, the duo is continuing to press on -according to their HQ.
