Cameron has arrived!
We are delighted to inform you that Cameron is now back in the UK!
He arrived to the South Pole on January 24th and posted the following message on his website:
The big day has finally arrived! The conditions remained favorable today for us to make the final 12nm push to the Pole. We took our time to collect the last pieces of footage on ski and savour the final hours on the ice. We were greeted at the Pole by an American News Crew who threw microphones and cameras in our faces as if we were film stars. At the Pole itself is an impressive new science base run by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF). It is home to 244 scientists and labourers who work in and around the base. The base manager came out to welcome us on the ice and after pitching our tent we were given a comprehensive tour of the base. The tour was followed by complimentary hot drinks and cake which we lapped up in record time. The rest of the day has been spent relaxing and chatting to people interested to know about our journey. It has been quite an overwhelming day, which for all of us reprrsents the culmination of over 14 months of planning and preparation. The people I need to thank will be named and shamed in the next dispatch. For now I must retire for a few hours rest. In the words of Roald Amundsen it was "a great day for skiing".
