After waiting so long…

Published on 28.11.2010 - The South Pole and Back (solo)

After a long wait of more than a week in Punta, Briton Chris Foot has finally made it to the sixth Continent, together with the other teams of this antarctic 2010-2011 season. They all landed at the new ALE base camp Union Glacier on Thursday 25 November at 5 pm GMT.

Day 1 of Chris Foot's expedition was therefore Friday 26 November ; this day, he has covered 9.5 nautical miles (17.5 km) and was in perfect shape. The ALE's Twin Otter had taken him to Hercules Inlet the day before.

The third day (Sunday 28 November), his headquarter wrote : "Todate Chris has covered 27 Nautical Miles, over some pretty rough terrain, the weather has been a bit overcast with some strong winds, but on the whole it has been to his advantage. Things should start to ease up over the next few days with the terrain leveling out and the going getting easier. He has asked me to say a big thanks to all of those that have emailed him and when possible he will try to get back to you..."
