A cold wind and otherwise unpleasant weather greeted us early this morning

Published 16.04 in category North Pole 2005

After boiling water, eating and taking down the tents, we were ready for new challenges and more kilometres.

The first hours were used to raise the body temperatures, but as the day progressed we were all warm and in good spirits. Even if the day was characterized by a cold wind and numerous pressure ridges, we managed to cover 20 km. We were helped by the fact that the ice drifted in the same direction as our travel. This is somewhat unusual in that the drift is usually easterly or south-easterly.

Peter Spiten is using this opportunity to send greetings home and to say that everything is o.k. and his feet are warm even after his little swim yesterday!
