harder than they were yesterday, but today they sure did. I was having a really good day today and then in the last session it was like a flick was switched and I hit a wall. I then completely slowed down and Dad stayed with me. Slow enough until we lost sight of the rest of our team in the fog ahead. Dad was telling me we had to move and all at the same time I had a stabbing pain in my hip and felt like I was about to throw up. I don’t know how I did it, but we made it to the other guys about 30 minutes later and then set up camp. When I got there it was all really weird - I couldn’t see out of my goggles because they had fogged up, I had a ringing in my ears, I couldn’t feel my fingers and toes and my whole chest and face was covered in wet snow. Today was the second day I ended sobbing and I seriously cannot imagine a harder day than this one. We had around minus 30 temperatures and a strong head wind again. We covered 17.6km measured in a straight line but we moved on zig zags to avoid large sastrugi, crevasse fields and the Leverett Road. This ice road is a supply route to McMurdo Station at the South Pole but if we use it we will lose the “unsupported” status of our expedition as it was made by vehicles. We had no choice but to cross it twice but will now stay clear of it. Despite the tough times now, I keep telling myself that the pain is temporary. The positive voice inside my head is currently winning. #bravenotperfect #expandpossible #climatechange #jadesquest #thepolarhatrick #northpole #greenland #southpole #nationalgeographic #nationalgeographicapp @natgeo @natgeoau @australiangeographic

#Repost @jadehameister. 10 days in to her Antarctic expedition and Jade is doing incredibly well! ・・・
Day 10: Biggest day yet for all of us. Our second day on the Plateau and conditions are brutal. We’ve had sub 20 temperatures and constant strong head winds, forcing us to always be wearing face masks (this photo is of mine and dad’s, frozen) and 2 extra layers (sometimes meant I had 5 layers on skiing). Also meaning we can’t expose our skin for long. The first session this morning was super average and the voice in my head kept telling me I was an idiot for putting myself in this situation. It is so hard out here to block out negative self talk and continue putting one foot in front of the other. I turned up a bit late to our usual lunch stop as going to the toilet for a girl out here takes another 7282918 hours. It sucks. And by the time I’m moving again I’m freezing. It’s one thing I dread most out here, and then I constantly have to be drinking too because I don’t want to become dehydrated. Lunch was short and sweet by the time I got there and my noodles were cold and my cheese was rock solid so I didn’t eat it. After another 3-4 hours of skiing after lunch, we made camp and after unpacking everything from my sled into the tent and started to take off layers I realised that the bottom of one of my braids had frozen to my face mask and buff and was now stuck in a thick solid layer of ice. I had no energy left by that point so I just sat in the vestibule sobbing until I could bring my self into the tent to sobb there too. It took about an hour for me to unfreeze my hair over the stove while I sat there in my cold and wet clothes from the day shivering. Somehow when nothing seems to be going my way, there’s this other voice in my head that believes there is absolutely nothing wrong and I am loving it, so that’s the voice I’m listening to. I’m now about to have dinner and then hopefully have an ok sleep to be ready to do it all again in the morning. #bravenotperfect #expandpossible #climatechange #jadesquest #thepolarhatrick #northpole #greenland #southpole #nationalgeographic #nationalgeographicapp @natgeo @natgeoau

☆☆☆☆ Stumbled across this in a horror section. And it was surprisingly better than I thought it would be. Its about ppl at a base of opportunities in the south pole going threw a "winter over" were they r cut off from any help for the harsh winter months. It starts off with a death, and the panic just escalates from there. .

After three weeks of #trekking, the team was able to take a down day in the shadows of the #Thielmountains. This allowed them to repair #gear and #clothing, and care to their cuts & bruises, before having a family dinner. Find out more (link in bio) .
