On the move again

Published 03.03 in category North Pole 2006

Now we’re on the move again! We’ve reached N85?47’34”, E92?, after a day with good ice conditions. We walked 23 km. We encountered a couple of open leads today, but managed to cross them without having to swim. I’m thankful for that, because temperatures have dropped to –35?C. I can promise you that you really notice the difference between 30 and 35 below – not so much when we’re out walking, but when we’re trying to do things inside the tent. Simple tasks can be complicated by the extreme cold of metal surfaces; even talking on the satellite phone is difficult.

Our ski repairs seem to be holding up pretty well… (broken connection)
