I felt ratshit today, no energy, no power, no stamina. Just one of those days where tentlife couldn't come soon enough.

But I could still appreciate the beauty. A bank of mottled clouds rolled in from the south, intermittently blanketing us in shadow and bathing us in sun. Each sunny spell was rebirth all over. Even the shadows on the frickin' sastrugi had me mesmerised.

We are in the 88th parallel and above the height of South Pole. We've covered 385km with 220 to go. It's our 22nd day, we did 22km and it was -22c. And I need 22 hours sleep!
