ThePoles.com continue to report bad weather in the Antarctic with many teams facing high winds and whiteout conditions. It’s gotten so bad that planes currenlty can’t land at Patriot Hills, and there are three teams stuck at Camp 1 on Vinson, unable to go up or down the mountain.
The Kiwis are reporting whiteout conditions, and slow moving, while Polar Quest has moved within three weeks of their goal. Ray and Jenny faced similar conditions a the Kiwis, but after waiting it out for a couple of hours, they were able to get back on their feet and moving, albeit slowly, and not with out problems with their sleds. Hannah reports nasty winds as well, making her trip slow, cold and lonely. Finally, Team n2i continues toward the South Pole of Inaccessibility, in what is likely the toughest, and coldest, of the expeditions.
