We’re now hauling well, making over 25km per day. We’ve 224km to go till Dye 2, a deserted US base in the middle of the plateau, and 444km till the west coast – our finishing point.
We just found out via Sat Phone that Charlie Paton’s team have had another two members evacuated off their expedition, namely Gert, the other Belgian, and George the American doctor. We’re unsure as to there whereabouts but believe that Charlie and John are continuing.
As for ourselves, we’re fed, watered and feeling physicaly well.
