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!

 

 

— Coordinates of the 9th overnight stop: S 89 5170 W 32 1480

— Altitude: 2770.3 meters.

— Time in transit: 8 hours 7 minutes.

— Distance passed: 21.1 км.

— Average speed: 2.6 km/h

— Weather: wind, cloudy.

Hello! This is Alexander Abramov from Antarctica. Today, our first group flew to Punta Arenas. And the  second group of seven came. Two guides, I and Vladimir Kotlyar met them at the Union Glacier. Now we have arrived already at the base camp of Vinson Massif. Everything happened very quickly, very suddenly. Just half an hour after landing, we were crammed into a small airplane. Now it is 2 a.m., we had dinner and now we go to bed.

 The weather in fact  is some very unstable, a strong west wind ... more clouds.

So we do not even see the top. Tomorrow, most likely, we will go to the next camp called Low Camp. The team is only male. All people are healthy, eat well, with a good appetite. So tomorrow will try to move to the Lower Camp, from where I will try to contact you ...
