Every night we anchor the tents to the ice using ice screws. It's a fine art selecting a suitable campsite; flat, big enough for two tents, wind-protected, nearby compacted snow supply, little chance of ice fracturing overnight. The photo is of Seamus (standing) and Heath removing the ice cores from the screws after dismantling the tent. If it's not done the next camp will have a dismal start.
With a fresh wind from the SE and a generally smooth surface with little pressure or leads we skied 22km today and camp just shy of the 89th parallel. At this rate we could be at the pole in 6 days but this place can, and will, change in an instant. We are on a lucky streak but luck plays but a small role out here. Eric

For security guards, wearing a uniform that conveys professionalism and reliability is essential. A well-designed security guard shirt not only helps in establishing a professional image but also enhances the confidence and morale of the personnel wearing it. font and back print security shirts

However, it's crucial to use caution when dealing with wild animals, as they can be unpredictable and may carry diseases. Additionally, trapping squirrels without the proper knowledge and experience can be ineffective and potentially inhumane. Squirrel Removal
