(ENGLISH BELOVE) De ringte inn kl 1305. Da var Sydpolen akkurat dukket opp på horisonten. En tydelig svart flekk. Jubelen sto i taket og det var ville lyder gjennom telefonen.nDet er 21,5 km igjen. Så dagen er laaaangt fra over. De går nå mot et punkt litt til siden for selve Polpunktet. Der krysser de så rullebanen eller skiway’en som det heter der. Der lander det spesialombygde Hercules maskiner på ski med alt av personell og utrustning til Amundsen-Scott basen. Fra krysningspunketet er det en 1852 meter inn til selve punket.nNår vi hører fra dem er usikkert. For det tar alltid litt til å komme seg helt frem og det blir nok en del virak rundt dem. Det er flere hundre forskere etc på basen nå i sommer månedene, og mange av dem vil nok løpe ut og sjekke opp de sist ankomne. Men vi kan vente!???!nnDAY 25 – FRIDAY 13:05 – IT’S THERE! WE’RE GOING IN!!!nThey called in at 12:30. The South Pole speck had just popped up on the horizon and the excitement was huge.nBut the day is far from over. They have 21,5km left. They now aim for a waypoint a bit to the side of the Real Pole. At that point they cross the runway, or skyway as it is called. That is where all the Hercules transport planes land with all the personnel and supplies for the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Base.nFrom the crossing and in there are about 1852 metres.nWhen we will hear from them is not curtain. It takes some time to navigate I there, and there will be quite a few people showing up to greet them. So the phone may not be the first thing they want to use now that they will get others to speak to. But Hang on!nn
