Finally, a whole day without any surprises! We drove 86 km and passed 80 degrees south at 3 p.m. this afternoon. With other words, we had a good day at work today.

Last night we packed down the Christmas tree and prepared for setting out this morning. We were rolling at 8 a.m. and made good progress without any kind of surprises. Also, we passed a milestone when we crossed the 80 degrees latitude south this afternoon. We will stop for tonight and head out tomorrow morning for our next science stop which we probably reach in the afternoon.
