It was a luxury not to wake to an alarm. We had arranged breakfast for 9.30am so sleep ins were the order of the day. As for breakfast - French toast, crumbled egg, bacon, fruit and yoghurt. Nom nom!

After lunch we went back to visit the actual geographical pole, the marker that denotes 90 South, where we captured the coordinate on our GPS. A bunch of photos and filming rounded off the visit but the highlight was Heath placing his tongue on the ball and leaving some DNA behind!

Tomorrow we fly back to Union Glacier in a Basler, the classic DC3 tail dragger aeroplane.

Hannah has helped us look into our claim to Jade being the first woman to ski a new route to the South Pole, unassisted, unsupported or otherwise, and it seems that there were others before her. There have of course been many women that have skied to the South Pole, a smaller number from the geographical coast to the pole, fewer have done it without support or assistance and it seems only two have previously skied unsupported and unassisted from the geographical coast via a previously unused route. As always my hat is tipped to all those that take a pioneering role in polar adventure and exploration.

Thanks to my sponsors Mont Equipment, Hilleberg the Tentmaker, Baffin Footwear, Smitten Merino, Satila of Sweden, Julbo Eyewear, Lum Tec Watches and G-Layer communications, to my local outdoor store Mountain Creek, and to Expenews for hosting this blog. And thanks to everyone for following this blog and for your comments and messages along the way.

In March and April Icetrek will again be guiding trips in Svalbard and to the North Pole. Meanwhile, many happy adventures to you all.
