Today, the six of us depart UK bound for Punta Arenas in Chile where we will meet up with our freighted kit and equipment.
Next week will be spent repacking and receiving final briefings prior to our flight onto the Antarctic scheduled for 22 October – but of course the weather will have a vote in that as well. The prospect of the journey South is very exciting but there are many stages to go through yet so patience will be required, of that I am certain.
I intend to send our first audio broadcast back from Punta Arenas tomorrow.
Best wishes from us all and please continue to spread the word of our project.
