Hello from Antarctica day 11. First Antarctic blizzard experience I moved no where, same camp position. At First I felt like a slug laying around all day, I felt like loser figuring out that ahh geez everybody else must go out when it's like this and I'm just sacking out. After I realized my tent was being buried because I couldn't fit in my sleeping bag completely I had to go out about half an hour ago and undig the tent and after I got back in I hacked and coughed a good 5 minutes because the snow is so aerosolized that you keep breathing it in even with a face mask so. Definitely pretty rough conditions it's entertaining, I mean it's so much blowing snow I can occasionally barely see my sleds and only 2 feet away from the tent. Unfortunately the weather forecast says the same for tomorrow so I'm gonna have to get a little cozy here and tidy things, try and get some of this dusty snow out, get ready to clean camp. I always think that other people are out tracking and actually moving forward in these conditions I don't know. I hope not cause I would feel like a real loser but. Maybe everybody else camps out and hangs in this sort of weather we'll see. Anyway, having a good time.
