Hi everyone

Welcome to the blog of our upcoming expedition - South Pole via Kansas Glacier.

Starting from the Ross Ice Shelf we will pioneer another new route up the Kansas Glacier onto the Stanford Plateau then across the giant Antarctic Plateau to the South Pole. All without assistance or resupply. The attached map and aerial photographs from the 1960?s give a small indication of what we?re up for.

Join 16yo schoolgirl Jade Hameister, her dad Paul, cameraman Ming DArcy (filming for National Geographic), camera assistant Heath Jamieson and me as we ski and film our way across 600+km to the bottom of the Earth.

Starting December 4, you?ll find daily text, image and map updates at a few locations; Icetrek, Expenews or on Facebook .

Once under way, our team can receive your messages sent via the 'Send a Message to the Team? function but any comments wont be read by us until we get back.

I hope you enjoy the trip as much as we love being on the ice.

Eric Philips
