Ok - we have really progressed things with the expedition organisation now, and we are very grateful to our main sponsor, Propinvest.
Important parts of kit have been arriving, website is up and running at www.britishsouthpole.com, and training has been ramped up.
We recently returned from a week in the Swiss Alps, where we trekked climbed from Chamonix to Zermatt. This involved up to 10hrs a day of trekking over 3000m mountain passes with heavy packs on our backs. This has given our fitness a boost and we are now getting up early and dragging tyres round Hyde Park .
