We had a nice traveling day today. Dogs and people are well rested after a day off.

We have not seen any tracks of wildlife in a couple of days. I’m hoping to see a pack of white wolves when we get closer to Eureka.

This morning we had more of a south wind than earlier, which usually means cloudy weather. Luckily today was nice and clear. We are still in the rough ice, and are prepared to be working in this condition for a while.

Everyone is happy and healthy, both people and dogs.

Bra dag I dag, med uthvilte hunder og ungdom. Vi er fortsatt I pakkisen, men sledene har naa blitt lettere med omtrent 12 dagers mat og hundefor igjen.

Vi har naa naadd 79 ende breddegrad, haaper paa aa komme oss til 80 ende breddegrad innen en uke.

Alt fugerer som det skal. Hundene har kommet seg I bedre form og det har vi ogsaa. Paa grunn av all pakkisen har vi ikke gaatt paa ski paa 8 dager. Vi savner aa gaa paa ski.

Vinden snudde I morges til mer sorlig vind, som ofte forer med seg mer overskyet ogtaakevaer. Vi var heldige med vaeret I dag. Klar/lettskyet og rundt -20 C.

Haaper dere alle nyter vaaren I Norge. Jeg vil gjerne hilse hjem til mor Inger, far Jon Arne og bror Petter.

Hei saa lenge,

Sigrid
