A Good Day with 31 degrees Celsius below zero

"It has been a good, but cold day with 31 degrees below. On Thursday evening we hoist the Danish flag "Dannebrog" on our ski staves. We expect to reach the South Pole on Friday January 12th - late in the afternoon. Fuel and food sufficient. We are looking forward."

On Thursday Kristian and Gregers were only one and a half day from the goal, when the above mail was received via satellite. The going is still reported as heavy, but the weather good. That means relatively weak wind and sun.

The sufficient quantities of food and fuel mean that they have enough to await the plane that is expected to pick Kristian and Gregers up during the next 10 days.

Because of the restrictions applying to South Pole expeditions the travelers are to be self-sufficient as regards fuel and food, so as not to be a burden to the personnel of the American Scott-Amundsen base at the geographical South Pole.
