smashed!

Sun beckoned us from the tent and stayed with us for much of the day. The surface was heavy but working in stints up front we smashed out just over 20km in 8 hours of hauling. But now we are smashed, aching, tired but high in morale, banter between the tents.

We are camped on an old lead with a small crack nearby to absorb any possible ice pressure overnight which is unlikely as there is no wind (aside from in Heath and Seamus' tent!).

Picture of the team negotiating some gnarly terrain. Heath out front, Seamus second and Nacer in green.

Beef Teriyaki tonight. And Vodka. But won't be getting...smashed!
