Tirsdag: N66.10.044 W041.16.294

Dyp snø. Tråkking og brøyting hele dagen. 25.2 km på 9 økter er veldig bra!

Både utstyr og enkelte kropper kjenner 3 uker på ekspedisjon.

Jon Even knakk en ski i dag, tretthetsbrudd under helen/foten!

Timen ekstra i leiren i dag gjorde godt og felles middag/kaffe er dagens sosiale høydepunkt. Med dikt, skrøner og i dag utdeling av flaxlodd og dram J

Vi nyter de siste dagene og alle jobber knallhardt og bra for fremdrift i det tunge føret. Snart kan vi se fjellene på østkysten!

Vind og minus 25 nå, men alle ligger varmt i soveposene J! Inge

Still in deep snow. Trampling and plowing all day. 25.2 km in 9 sessions is very good!

Both equipment and certainly our bodies can already feel the 3 weeks we have been through.

Jon Even snapped a ski today, fatigue fracture under the heel/foot!

The extra hour in camp today did good, as well as dinner with coffee, today’s social highlight! Along with poems, tales and old stories…

We are enjoying the last few days, everyone works hard and we are doing good progress in the heavy conditions. Soon we will see the mountains on the east coast!

Windy and minus 25 now, but all is warm inside our sleeping bags J!
