The Final Phase
Published on 17.01.2008 - Optical Express South Pole Challenge
Cameron Hudson and John Huston are continuing to strive to reach the pole before 25 January.
Despite some unhelpful but not disastrous weather, Cameron Hudson and John Huston are progressing on average 35 km a day. They are setting up camp later in the evening, sleeping less and getting up earlier.
As a result: they're getting nearer and nearer to the pole. On 15 January, they had 231.5 more kilometres left to cover. They thus have to cover an average of 23 kilometres per day. That's not an impossible challenge.
