Oh, but it's the volume that can get to you! They have no volume control. Back in the palaeolithic era when I was living at home and studying, my mother used to babysit my two then-young nephews, and when one would start up the other would join in and they'd both be at it and the noise penetrated through to my bone marrow and the deepest recesses of my brain and I couldn't concentrate. It was hellish! I'd have considered going to the South Pole to escape it.

Here's an update on the Polar Expedition.

Team red (Harry's team Glefiddich), still in the lead. About 1/4 there. One team had a guide lifted out for medical care (altitude sickness), but he will rejoin the team when he's better.

I find WWTW pages a bit odd to navigate. So here's a link to current team positions. Enjoy.

Walking With The Wounded – South Pole 2013
Thanks so much for posting the link to WWTW to track the progress of the teams.

The more I read about this challenge they're all taking on, the more astonished I become. These are definitely the men and women who are truly heros in my book.

Two excellent and scary updates today. These are brave people.

Walking With The Wounded – South Pole 2013

Walking With The Wounded – South Pole 2013
They are now on Day 5 and at or almost at a base camp where they will get 24 hours enforced rest. I can only imagine caring for limbs and prosthetics on this trek.

On the map, the UK team seems to have thought they could keep on going. Walking With The Wounded – South Pole 2013

Prince Harry's expedition to the South Pole suspended after organiser decides teams are being pushed 'a little too hard' | Mail Online

Quote:
Prince Harry's race to the South Pole with his fellow Walking With The Wounded expedition competitors has been suspended for safety reasons.

Harry set off on the gruelling charity trek on Sunday with a team of injured British servicemen and women against groups from the U.S. and the Commonwealth.

But the expedition director Ed Parker has taken the decision to suspend the race aspect of the challenge, but he is determined that all the members will make it to the South Pole as one group

the media headlines on this have been so misleading. If that is all anyone read (and there's a lot that do) you'd think the whole thing was all over.

Its the "race" that has stopped, not the walk. Why can't headline writers read the piece before writing the headlines (or tweets)?

Yes I agree. Here is another example of a misleading headline.
BBC News
Actually, this seems a very sensible precaution to take and should not detract from the enormity of the challenge they are all undertaking.

Although this was a race, I always thought how cool it would be if all the teams walked together to the actual South Pole. Suspending the race aspect I think is a good idea.

I'd like to see a picture off all of the teams forming a circle around the South Pole in celebration.

Since Harry is DOING the expedition, I think this is a current event rather than just a charitable appearance.

United teams made good progress today. They are still skiing over rotten terrain caused by drifted and solidified snow.

Best to all!

I also said this to Iluvbertie but, quite rightly, she pointed out that if it isnt in the CC then she can't include it. But we will remember he did this

I think Harry will remember it as well. It has been really tough. I hope we get to see a full beard before he shaves it!

Temp is -26C as I type this.

Well this has a number of interesting tidbits in it: The South Pole

There is a lovely photo of the Duke of Edinburgh and a short bit about The Princess Royal's 7 day stint in Antarctica in 2007.

Prince Harry’s Antarctic trek team mates have paid tribute to the Royal, describing his “crucial” role in their successful expedition to the South Pole.
Members of the Prince’s Walking With the Wounded team suffered frost bite while others struggled with the effects of altitude and exhaustion. The 200-mile trek was also hit by severe weather, and the race element was called off half way through over safety fears.
But Captain Guy Disney, 31, one of Prince Harry’s team mates, said he coped “easily” with the -49F (-45C) temperatures.

Oh yah.. he's definitely oozing the alpha male vibes. I'd like to see him keep that beard for a while. There's just something about a man with a beard that gets my attention.
