Big Decisions: Ponies or Just Plain Brute Strength?

Richard's location: December 19th: S 87:35.9 W 75:19.0 266.87 km to the South Pole! 100 years ago Scott used ponies to try and pull his equipment to the South Pole (didn't work so well..). Today, Richard and Michael were the "team ponies". Richard and Michael have been pulling both Ruth and Chris De Lapuente's sleds. Chris is doing his best to travel with his broken wrist (a tough guy!) and a swollen knee. Despite the difficulties of the day, they still managed an impressive 24km. Let's wish the team a stellar day tomorrow! That's all for now. Tessum
