Nov 29 - Colder and Windy

It is now overcast and low visibility. None of the surrounding mountains are visible this morning. The wind also has picked up. It is a lot colder than yesterday. What was water in the bottom of my tent is now just ice.
At 11:00 I will get a route briefing. I will also pack my bags today and try and figure out the best way to distribute the load for this first segment. From the reports I have gotten the first 30 miles are going to be VERY hard.
In the dinning building here at base camp they have an elevation profile for Hercules to South Pole. I have looked for this in the past but could never find one. To conserve satellite minutes I'll wait until I get home to post the picture.
