Second day and we are bushed! The ice is clumpy and we negotiated a
field of rubble that was pretty discouraging. After two hours of
pulling our heavy sledges across these pressure ridges the size trucks,
I looked up to see the same landscape for miles in all directions! We
traveled for seven hours and ended at N85:09.665 W077:44.632 or a
distance travelled of 7.09 nautical miles whuch isn’t bad on a second
day. Temps have been mostly around -34C all day until the last hour
which dropped below 40. Great grub courtesy of chef Keith. We are dead
beat and, oh,yeah, it is COLD out there! Over and out.
