"Novolazarevskya Station, Antarctica: We spent the day packing gear onto the sled that will be towed by the Everest tracked vehicle across the ice to Lake Untersee. We made pretty good progress today and we plan to begin the 125 km traverse early tomorrow morning. Hopefully we will be at Lake Untersee by about 2pm UTC. For the moment we are still enjoying nice weather with clear skies, warm temperatures and little wind and if we are lucky this will be the case when we head to the lake tomorrow. Once at Lake Untersee we will beging putting up tents so if the weather becomes inclement we will have refuge from wind and blowing snow."
