I'll scream it again. Aaaaargh! I pegged this trip as one that would be, other than ourselves and our comms, completely void of human evidence - tracks, planes, flight trails, satellites, waste, anything to indicate other human existence. But no. We passed two empty and weathered fuel drums, a legacy likely from the aerial survey work of the 1960's. I am so bummed. Seems I may need to wait until next year for a pristine trip to the South Pole!

Mixed bag today - wind, cloud, sun, still, ice, snow, crevasses, sastrugi, warm, cold, fast, slow. We're now camped at the southern margin of the mountains. In the photo, the bluff behind the tent can be seen on the aerial photo, to the right of our current Camp 11. After that we do a little dogleg then head due south.

The next couple of days herald what I see as the crux of the glacier.

Damn drums.
