1981. Probably, this is celebration of the 25th anniversary of their wedding, how do you think?
I’d also say so!
Sadly, we had to call off the race element of the expedition.
The first four days was a full out slog. It really tested every single individual mentally and physically.
I think everyone, including myself, has managed to get a hell of a lot out of it and it will be an experience that will live with us for the rest of our lives. However, due to a few small injuries – nothing too serious – and the weather, it is really putting us behind and so the race element has been stopped, but for very good reasons.
Now, what can only be described as stage 2 […] will be getting everyone back together, all three teams and redefining our essential goal, which is to make sure we get every single person there in one piece and to do everything we can for the charity.
We still have another 7 days of walking, which should be great fun and without the race element, it means we can really focus on what the expedition set out to achieve.
All is well, morale is good, everyone is rested, fit and ready to go. Another 7 days to push. We will probably make about 15-16km each day.
We are about 112 km from the South Pole and we all can’t wait to get there as one big group.
There is a bigger goal here, which we all set out from the start and that is what we need to achieve.
All is well.

This made me tear up. I love that they are basically forming one big team with a single goal in mind. Wonderful.
