Nothing So Expeditious and Complete.....

That's how Scott assessed the company's work bringing the stores ashore - a heavy-lifting, heavy-hauling process that came to an end on 10 January 1911. Fully "landed," Scott's attention would now turn to the planned depot-laying expedition and solidifying their Cape Evans encampment, both just ahead of the coming Antarctic winter.

On a quiet day for Scott, I might point you towards some other Internet efforts that illuminate his legacy - and the heroism that the South Pole has inspired in others: South-Pole.com's RFS bio and the American Society of Polar Philatelists are two I frequently visit.
