February 24-25, 1912: Scott’s Polary Party pushes on

–from Dr. Edward Wilson’s diary, two brief entries–

“Sat 24 Feb.  Bad attack of snowglare–could hardly keep a chink of eye open in goggles to see the course.  Fat pony hoosh.”

“Sun 25 Feb–My eyes much better.  Started my week of cooking.  No time for anything at any meals.  Very good day’s going on ski.  Took on job of pace maker and got sweated through–very cold night.”
