Kit Kat Ice Kites
16 December 2002
A typical sledge-hauling trek from Hercules Inlet to the South Pole takes 60 days. It is a serious endurance test, into the wind and gradually uphill all the way to the South Pole. Our plan is to "sail" specially designed ski-shod kite buggies from the South Pole back to Patriot Hills. The team expects to take about two weeks and enjoy ourselves.\n\nExpedition Site\n
