    I’m sure most people have noticed this already…it’s been in the news on-and-off for months. All their recent statements, though, have focused on specifically the fact that its a military group making the traverse.

    While not a permanent party, it doesnt violate the treaty but I can see it as being a percursor for Indias notion to drill in antarctica looking for the source of their holy river, (as they’ve mentioned over the past 6 months or so).

    Hadn’t seen that. IMO, just another group skiing to the pole. Might as well flag a route. Oh wait, there already is one.

    “..skiing over a distance of about 200 km…” I wonder where they’re starting from? It sure ain’t the coast.

    This must be the year for military groups heading to Pole…we’ve also got the RAF and the Royal Navy.

    The most comprehensive list of such ventures (sane, insane, or inane) that I’ve found happens to be here 🙂
