We have received word of clearing storm at Novolazarevskaya station in Antarctica. This is green light—all systems go! The wait is over. Next update will be from the ice. We’re going in, folks. I am taking all your well wishes with us on this historical mission. This is it!

    Fantastic news, I’ll be thinking of you climbing that glacier every morning as I do Runyon, wondering how on earth you can pull 400lbs up a glacier in minus 40º.

    You’re magnificantly crazy and absurdly brave, good luck, and stay warm, and please report in every day!!

    Thinking of you every minute with all my love. Stay safe and keep away from thin ice! Very proud of you, my son – of your courage, perseverance and determination but I cannot wait for you to come home! One day less—?! Only 111 left! All love from your mother xxxx

    Mon Bast chéri , je t’avais envoyé un petit texto au moment de ton départ , mais je ne crois pas qu’il te soit parvenu . Je te disais mon admiration pour ta détermination et ton courage , je te disais que je demande à mon petit ange de veiller sur toi , de te donner la force dans les moments de grande solitude et de découragement . Sache que nous sommes à tes côtés, plein d’amour. Je te serre dans mes bras petit frère comme je t’aime . Ta grande soeur for ever, Caroline xxx
