Nov 8th - The surface was so good in places that it was almost impossible to avoid slipping on the hard sastrugi I fell over several times but fortunately this never disturbs Victor who either stops to eat snow or ignores me altogether.
Nov 10th - Victor got off without mishap – he hates wind in his face & so I started him off from behind the wall bringing him head to wind when clear ... The surface was very slippery in parts & rather hard sastruga it was a case of falling or stumbling continuously. The light got so bad that one night have been walking in the clouds for all that could be discerned & yet it was only snowing slightly. The Bluff became completely obscured & the usual signs of a Bliz were accentuated.
