  • Lucy return journey update #1
    I am writing this from the back seat of a Kenn Borek Air Twin Otter, taking me away from the South Pole back to Union Glacier Camp.

Lucy got her head in the game and really enjoyed yesterday, her last full day before the vestiges of human occupation start turning up and interrupting the big white blankness that she’s been in (with a brief interruption at the skiway at Thiels) for the last 50-odd days. At some point today the south pole station will come into sight and Lucy will start seeing buildings again and […]
