Thursday, 21 March 1912


"Got within 11 miles of depôt Monday night [at Camp 60]; had to lay up all yesterday in severe blizzard. To-day forlorn hope, Wilson and Bowers going to depot for fuel." [1]

They were ten miles north of the point at which Scott had been urged to take the depot.


Amundsen left Hobart for the mainland to begin a lecture tour of Australia and New Zealand.
