Still waiting

Published 20.04 in category North Pole Last Degree 2014

We are still tent bound, waiting for pick up.

Waiting for another group to hit the Pole.

Barneo has drifted so far, that both this expedition and ours have to be picked up at the same time.

The other group found a big lead on their way before reaching the Pole. They had to wait for it to freeze, and at the same time the drift was so strong that they woke up far away from the Pole.

We cross fingers for them to reach the goal before tomorrow morning, which will be pick up time anyhow.

This can happen to anybody up here, it’s part of the game, and proves that there is nothing called “only a last degree”.

Right now we are grateful that we approached in a direction without a big lead, and our thoughts go to the guys who are doing the hard work right now!
