From Nigel: Well the storm that was predicted arrived! It was a beauty too. Winds over 30 metres per second peaking with gusts over 38 m/s. The hard work we had put in digging down and building a wall paid dividends and we were well protected despite the elements. With only room for 2 tents it was a squash and with 4 of us squeezed in one tent like sardines there wasnt much room. Upside was it was a great chance to sleep and rest bodies as we have some big days ahead. Late afternoon the wind eased and we dug the camp and pulkas out. Quite a job. We set off early evening and the wind died completely. It was glorious. We were excited to see DYE 2 in the distance for the first time. Pitching camp in the late evening we were glad to be back on the move.
