Wow! I couldn?t believe it when Clare told me this evening that we only have 70km left to ski to the South Pole!

Polly and I squealed with delight. Imagine we have been skiing for 55 days now- its hard to believe - we have already covered over 1000km!

On the map, we can see how close we are getting to the Pole. We started at 80 degrees and have now reached 89 degrees - when we get to 90 degrees, we are there

I'm trying to picture what the South Pole will look like, when we will be able to see it, who we will meet and what we will do there...

If everything goes according to plan, we should reach the Pole in 3-4 days - I can't wait!

Thank you to everyone who has sent good luck messages to Polly and me in the past few days -  its really helping us stay strong.
