Sailing Across Antarctica – Stuck in Customs

Sailing Across Antarctica

Daily Photo – Sailing Across Antarctica

This was quite the surprise! I was out about an hour’s snowmobile ride from the base in Antarctica camping out. The New Zealand base (Scott Base) puts out a series of flags to mark “roads” across the ice. After building our little camp, I went on a mini Photo Walk to explore the starkness. Out of nowhere, i saw this random Kiwi with a huge sail in the air while wearing skis. He went whizzing by almost too fast for a photo!
