Thursday morning / South Pole (still): Our folks find them selves in unknown territory. Not geographically, but weather-wise. They need and want wind! That is not what Polar explorers normally do. But right now they want the wind to blow as it always do at the Pole, catabatically towards the coast. Helas, – both visibility, wind and wind directions have ben wild the last couple of days. This is too bad, so they wait it out. (Ref Rory by his kite…). They could have walked off, as they will walk a lot on the way back. Thing is, the first part out of the Pole area is flat and nice and perfect for getting up to speed and get the hang of expedition kiting as a team. So they wait.

Right now Saturday seems like the best option.

In the meantime, the enjoy life at the Pole and write postcards. Gørild is leading with over 100! Will be interesting to see how many arrives home after having been dealt with by the South American Postal services…
