The landing party moved into the hut. "Very fine work has been done. Within 14 days of the site being chosen, the house had been completed, and virtually all provisions landed." 
"Here on the same barrier," Amundsen wrote in his diary, "where Shackleton praised his God that he had not landed -- here we have put up our house -- here we will have our home. That Ross did not want to come too close to this ice giant in his sailing ships -- that I understand. But that S. did not come here and take the great chance offered by an extra degree of Southern latitude; that I don't understand. Not one of us has given a thought to any danger in doing so. The future will show if we were right."
