Celebrating New Year's Day by resting


There will be plenty of time for The Danish South Pole Expedition to prepare the celebration of New Years Eve. Kristian and Gregers are resting all day, Dec. 31st, because of Saturday's hardships with a steep uphill terrain and very cold winds.

Resting day will among other things be spent on taking care of the frostbites they suffered on their cheeks due to the low temperatures of minus 25 degrees centigrade and the wind, producing a wind chill factor of minus 60 degrees.

"We have frostbites on our cheeks. We are hungry all the time, and by now we have lost a lot of weight," they wrote in a mail, which were sent Saturday evening.

During New Year's Day they will rest in their warm spleeping bags spending a minimum of calories and adding more by eating some extra courses and finishing the New Years supper with a chocolate covered marcipan bar as the clock sounds the turn of the year.

From the position 87.449S 81.600W Kristian and Gregers send their greetings:
"We wish our families, friends, sweethearts, supporters and especially our sponsors a Happy New Year."
