Hello!  It is Ludmila Korobeshko from Antarctica, a guide of  the expedition "The last two degrees," of the Kazakh Geographic Society. Now we are at 32 kilometers from the South Pole. The last days we walked 20 kilometers on a daily basis, which was not easy. Today we decided to go for one day remaining to the Pole 32 kilometers.

 

Most likely, the New Year for Moscow, we will meet on the road. What, in general, it is quite original. I think that at the time of the New Year for Moscow, we will be 12 kilometers from the Pole. I hope we will overcome it.

 

Well, that’s all, and Happy New Year! Hurrah!

HAPPY NEW YEAR, FRIENDS! Happiness, luck,

health to you and your loved ones !!!

 

 In the year of the Fire Rooster, we recommend going to the mountains! These birds always like to climb to the highest point, that is, on every continent on the Seven Summits! Roosters are punctual, they are serious about their duties, they act as  guides for their wards. They get up early, as the real climbers, they're out of their way to be heard, whatever the circumstances.

 

Take from them the best!

Good afternoon! It is Lyudmila Korobeshko from Antarctica. So, we continue to move to the South Pole, it remains 52 km. And we hope to go through it in two days. Although it is unclear whether this is real or not. Because the distance is certainly big. We want today to pass ... 20 km. And the last day we have  to go "up to the stop."

That is, we are fine. Weather ... not very good. All the time clouds, accordingly, it is difficult to navigate. When there is sun, it is much easier to follow the shade.

 

Well, all a Happy New Year! We hope in the night from 31 th to 1 st to be at the South Pole. Bye!

 

 

 

The goal of the Pole of Independence expedition team is to achieve the maximum, i.e. to make an effort and reach the Amundsen-Scott station till the New Year! You can trace the progress of the members at following link: http://kazgeo.kz/projects/sp2016/marshrut

 

Due to this reason Magzhan, Ilyas, Yury, and Daulet take their rest fast, immediately pack the camp, and pass the maximum possible distance, eat fast, and go to sleep. There is no space for sentiments, as there, behind the horizon, the desired georgaphical Southern Pole is awaiting for them, where the flag of our country Kazakhstan will be installed, as it was 5 years ago!

We were able to fulfill it. We walked 21 km today. However, in the end, it turned out about 9 hours of travel. Today it was a little warmer. Probably somewhere minus 20-25, the wind was also relatively strong.

 Good afternoon! It is Lyudmila Korobeshko saying from Antarctica. Now we are on the route. Yesterday we arrived by plane on the 88th degree, and we began to move. We were five people: me and four guys from Kazakhstan ... all sport-athletes. Yesterday we went only 3 hours, it is about 7 kilometers. Today we started at 9 am and went to almost 5 pm. Not much, 17 kilometers, but it is for the first day, in general, not bad. Along the way, we broke two fixtures, but fortunately we had a replacement. If something else breaks, already we will have to invent something. Yesterday it was warm enough, somewhere minus 21. Today in the evening there is more cold, I think, somewhere minus 25 - minus 30.

 Basically, it's okay, we're moving on.

 Greetings and Happy Holidays!
