On the White Continent

Updated: Jan 4

Team Blind is on Antarctica!

The weather cooperated this morning, allowing them to depart on time from Punta Arenas, Chile.

Those who have traveled in these remote and turbulent regions of the globe know that delays are not the exception, but the norm.

So we're taking the on-time departure as an omen of good fortune for the duration of the adventure!

Claus and Arne at Union Glacier Camp

But our adventurers aren't quite ready to begin the ski journey just yet. Tonight they will sleep in (relative) comfort at the Union Glacier base camp located in Antarctica's Ellsworth Mountains, roughly 600 nautical miles from the South Pole. They must take one more flight (hopefully departing tomorrow) before they can begin the 60 nautical mile Last Degree Expedition to the South Pole.

How excited they must be! The adventure of a lifetime awaits them in the coming days. We salute you, Team Blind, and wish you a pleasant evening. Tonight they have neighbors, but we hope that tomorrow night they will camp alone on the glorious Polar Plateau.
