The real Thing

Camp 5, Bengt calls in: The day has been very good. Started out in good weather on crampons and ice axe. Carried the first load tilt the snowline and returned for the second run.
Then the bliss started. We put on belts, sledge and skis! It was a wonderful feeling to do that after all these days as ‘tramps’. The snow and ice conditions seems to be quite ok, so we are hopeful of good progress further on. Today we did 6,5 km. Not very much, but still better than all the other days combined.
I must say the landscape and trip so far has been mind bugging. The contrasts and dramatic, and just like a fairytail. The weather has been more familiar. Just like at home in Trønerlag in Norway… a little of everything all the time.
Everything is fine, apart from a small burn on one foot due to spilled hot water. But it’ll grow.
As we are out now free of all the mountains we have better satellite signals and send some new and old pictures. Enjoy!
