Minus 20 degrees C and wind

Published 19.04 in category North Pole 2005

Minus 20 degrees C and wind soon translates into a minus 40 wind-chill factor and so today we have felt the cold on our bodies for yet another day. With a strong headwind and ice drifting southward we really have had to struggle to make 16 km today.

Most of us were completely wrapped up today and had problems keeping warm.

After each short stop it was necessary to wear our down jackets for quite some time.

Many of the group are looking forward to reaching the goal!

The North Pole is now 20 km away, and we should be able to get there tomorrow.
