Kathy has just emailed me and informed me the guys might not make it back to Ottawa until Tuesday next week. when I know more I'll post.

"Today, first of all I'd like to thank everyone for following our expedition and I'd particularly like to thank Kathy, Bob and Anton for all their hard work and Josee also for ahh supporting us out here it's very important to us and ahhh I'd like to say that I'm very proud that our team made this trek with, in such good time. Before I was on, before coming on the expedition I'd known Ray for almost ten years, but I'd never met Kevin. But ahhh we got along really well, famously; I've never laughed so much in an expedition. so we made a great team on the ice, and everyone participated in you know the crucial decisions during the expedition and I think our collective knowledge and experiences contributed you know to the fast time that we made going from Hercules Inlet to the South Pole. I hope everyone's enjoyed our blogs along the way and i'd like to thank everyone for following our trek and that's the final word from Richard. Thank you. Bye"
