3619 meters above sea level
Maximum & Minimum temperatures: -22 to -36°C
The medical doctor at Troll paid us a visit today to inspect the wounded finger of our chief driller. In addition, we were supplied with spare parts for the vehicles.
The doctor inspected the wounded finger and put the chief driller on medication to prevent further inflammation. She is doing fine but is not allowed to use her right hand in order for the wound to heal. The remaining part of the drill team has currently reached to a depth of 50 meters.
The Basler also carried spare parts for our vehicles, in particular two transfer boxes, one differential and hydraulic oil. Shallow coring was completed and Stian prepared for flying the drone. Mary spent a lot of time filming for PolarPalooza that produces podcasts from the traverse. PolarPalooza will have a photographer meeting up with the traverse at arrival at South Pole.

This contribution is from the log of the Norwegian-US Scientific Traverse team, who are en route from Troll Station to South Pole Station. Much more information can be found here.
