Its official as it could ever be ….. Today it was declared the worst trip/ 3 degrees ever…(greenland and antarctica) With the most brutal of conditions. So, i guess today …. Brutal was elevated to new heights! We have passed our third degree – so just 7 more degrees left. Oh and this morning we had (antarctica term) lots of snow hoars on the skis, tent guidelines and covering the surface. To you and me, they are little snow ball crystals scattered delicately along the edge of skis or seen hanging from the lines. On the snow surface they look like little pyramids …. The reality, however, is its uber cold and on the ground they are like glue and ensure that max effort is put into each step!!
