17 Dec Barney Selfie – Day 26 of SPEC
Lots of long discussions today about logistics, distance and the time we have remaining. We must increase our the number of nautical miles we travel each day, starting tomorrow in order to reach the South Pole before the close of the Antarctic season. With just over 300nm to go it is a daunting task ahead. I am slow, I recognize that and still fatigued from the travel already completed. My body has not recovered as well as I had hoped but my only concern is that I don’t slow the others down. This weighs heavy with me tonight. We must make good time and I hope I can keep pace. Off now for an early start tomorrow early.
