Nilson is telling us that the Antarctic is the most remote place on Earth (sic). When he calls home he feels like being an other ET calling from space...
Here are his last updates :
"06:00 / South Pole / 2011-12-28 / 11 hours in -25 / Today we were on the skis for 11 hours. Im sitting in the tent right now trying to warm up. I have three pair of big wool socks, plastic boots and a minus 40 cover...and still I have no feeling in my toes. Totally numb! Now I will try to get the frost out of my face and get some sleep!"
"06:00 / South Pole / 2011-12-26 / ET, Phone home! / Antarctica is the most remote place on Earth; 12 393 000 km2 of ice. When I call back to civilization it's almost like calling from space. Today we kited 60 km and we really did not move that fast. It took 9 hrs to move those 60 km. We have appx 1600 km to go so we have to kite 60 km per day to make it in time..."
