Section 15! 27.18: https://librivox.org/uploads/craigdav1/journalsofrobertfalconscottvol1_15_scott_128kb.mp3 By the way if you go onto YouTube and search under Captain Scott, Antarctic and Discovery Hut, you will find some fascinating short films about the Hut as described in this chapter. The inter...

Here is section 14, at 13.41. https://librivox.org/uploads/craigdav1/journalsofrobertfalconscottvol1_14_scott_128kb.mp3
Again plenty of drama, and one feels for both humans and beasts in the unforgiving snow.....

Re: [SOLO] CAPTAIN SCOTT'S LAST EXPEDITION - JOURNAL (1913) - dc

I forgot to mention in my post for S13 that I left out a table of geographical bearings half way through the chapter, but I assume you would agree this table, like the others I've omitted, was quite obscure, especially when in the form of an audio....

Strange to say your description your daily Chicago side-street walks exactly mirrors our own!

Here is Section 13, at 21.41: https://librivox.org/uploads/craigdav1/journalsofrobertfalconscottvol1_13_scott_128kb.mp3 Plenty of incident and adventure here, though it is again the animals - and their plight - who are at the centre of things. Hope you are OK in Chicago. Today in London we can go ou...

Here is section 11. https://librivox.org/uploads/craigdav1/journalsofrobertfalconscottvol1_11_scott_128kb.mp3 Another very interesting and evocative chapter, with a number of reflection on the lives of the dogs and ponies...

Re: [SOLO] CAPTAIN SCOTT'S LAST EXPEDITION - JOURNAL (1913) - dc

Thanks for all your advice, David. I finally managed to upload the latest version of MP3 onto my laptop and have 'normalised' all my Scott files to 89dB, and re-uploaded them. I don't use Audacity except on rare occasions because with my film background I am much more comfortable using the very soph...

Re: [SOLO] CAPTAIN SCOTT'S LAST EXPEDITION - JOURNAL (1913) - dc

PS I also forgot to mention when I originally posted my S10 upload that I had added some short headings to the sledge inventories. As they stood I felt they would have been quite confusing, but I did want to keep them in the narrative as they are a fascinating insight into the daily life of the team...

Re: [SOLO] CAPTAIN SCOTT'S LAST EXPEDITION - JOURNAL (1913) - dc

On volumes I forgot, when I began this project, that in the old days I used to apply a programme "MP3 gain" to my final files to regulate them all, and perhaps I should go back and do all this and re-upload so that there is a precise common level? I have been doing a final check by ear each time, bu...

Re: [SOLO] CAPTAIN SCOTT'S LAST EXPEDITION - JOURNAL (1913) - dc

Here is Section 10 - marking a vivid and evocative stage as Scott embarks at last with his pony and dog sledges. Although I have to say the expedition proper only begins a few months later (and a few more chapters) after a long wintering period camped on the ice. But I hope you enjoy this particular...
