Doug Stoup and his companion Richard Dunwoody have reached SP on January 18th.

Here is their press communiqué :

Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, Antarctica - 18 January 2008 - Trekking 209 km in their last week (1,089 km total), Richard Dunwoody and Doug Stoup arrived at the Geographic South Pole at 10.23 GMT after 48 days and 20 hours on the glacial ice - establishing a new route based on Sir Ernest Shackleton's planned 1915 'Endurance' expedition.

Pushing the limits, the two-man team arrived ahead of schedule despite injuries and exhaustion. They will remain at the South Pole until Monday, when they will be flown out to the Russian base at Novolazarevskaya. From there, they will catch a flight to Cape Town, South Africa and then home.
