Updates coming from Sean, the expedition’s videographer:
Yesterday, the one engine on the twin otter aircraft that was supposed to fly the team to their destination needed repair. So they went off on a long ski training session.
Today, the engine has been repaired and they will be departing for 89 degrees South in an hour’s time. It’s extremely cold. It’s minus 15 degrees Celsius at Union Glacier without wind and Sean is already feeling the chill biting into him. At the South Pole it’s minus 40 degrees Celsius!
