DAY 32: LATITUD 82º SOUTH

Hours of journey: 9h15 - Accumulative: 134h45
Km./Day: 20 - Accumulative: 247,6Km.
Days of progress: 17 (13 Solo) - Inactive Days: 15 (0 Solo) - Total Days: 32

20 Km. in 9 hours and 15 minutes. Half an hour less than two days ago to cover the same distance. It's a very small victory, but important for me, as it indicates the trend towards a rhythm improvement.

I am happy. Even pushing it too hard (more hang 9 hours a day is just too much and a guarantee of being crushed), I see I can consolidate these 20 kilometres per day. Surely there will be lots of days where I will be below those 20 Km. again, but now I have set this "2" bar in front and I'm looking to repeat it as many times possible. In fact, my next target will be to get to 25 Km. per day. Not sure how long will it take me, but I'm positive I'll get there.

I have camped to day right at the 82º Parallel line Latitude South. It is nothing special, but there it is, just at 10 minutes from where I am and where I have taken the photo I'm sending you.

From 80º to 81º took me 11 days. And from degree 81 to the 82 It has taken me 6. Quite a positive improvement. Now I have to see if I can get to Parallel 83 in 5 journeys. That would mean set a pace of 4 or 5 days per degree.

Right in the edge of the 82 degree latitude south, is exactly where I am now and where Roald Amundsen installed his last deposit with supplies at the end of the summer just before his final attack to the South Pole. On February 1911, eight expeditionary and their sledges pulled by dogs, reached parallel 82, carrying plenty of material and food, that would be vital for Amundsen trip to the South Pole later in October that same year, and after spending the whole winter in the Antarctic coast.

Hola Albert, enhorabuena por la aventura!

Te quería preguntar si podías explicar cómo escribes el blog. Es dictado o escribes directamente ... es que me cuesta imaginarte a menos 40 grados sacandote los guantes y escribiendo todo esto, sin faltas ni erroes. No se como lo haces pero gracias!

estimat albert,
Fa un parell de setmanes vem tenir la oportunitat d'anar a Ivalo, nord de Finlandia, amb la Mireia. Allà varem comprar el llibre Two Poles del kari Poppis, fill de Ivalo. El Kari és un dels 11 valents que han pogut esquiar tant el pol nord com el pol sud sense suport exterior. El seu llibre fa patent la proesa que estas portant a terme. El Kari assegura que estar adherit a una estricta disciplina és un factor determinant per qualsevol expedició. Estic convençut que d'això no te'n faltarà... En el seu diari expliquen que a partir del km 200 la seva distància diaria va pujant considerablement...
molta energia des del bressol del montseny i
Fins demà

Vinga nen, ja vas a ritme. Ara ves en compte i no et despistis o t'haurem d'anar a buscar a Mirnyy...
Avui toca un acudit de terres africanes en castellà.
Un elefante pregunta a un camello:
- ¿Por qué tienes las tetas en la espalda?
- Extraña pregunta...- dijo el camello - ...viniendo de alguien que tiene el miembro en la cara..
Petons i força.
