So we’re here at the end of day nine. We’ve got a long way to go but so far it’s moving fast. I’m sure the others have told you all the things that have happened in the last week. Traveling through a labyrinth of ice, bears coming into camp and even being stalked by one. It has really been exciting. Today we hit some flats. It’s a nice change of pace and we have slowly started to make those miles we so desprately need. The dogs are enjoying the rest from pulling our heavy sleds over mountains of ice boulders, and their motivation has given our voices a rest from shouting “hike, hike, hike” every twenty meters. All is going great so far. The grime is starting to build on our clothes and we can smell all the hard work we’ve been doing the last week. Our faces have turned a leathery brown and white from our glasses surrounds our eyes. We are starting to look like a project of our environment. I am loving this so far. Its a great team of people who all add something unique to the cause. Keep doing all your own exciting things.
All the best,
