My damaged sled is holding up well. But it will need regular maintenance to prevent the cracks from worsening. It has a crack from half way along the hull to the top of the bow, stitched up with pink spectra cord. I've also stitched a strip of plastic butchered from the front bulkhead over the cracked section making contact with the snow so that I retain a semblance of glide. I've dubbed my sled Frankie! But my fingers have paid the price, a little cold damaged from working outside on the dexterous job.

Our last remaining 'ruggedised' solar panel sustained some damage in the sastrugi but Keith managed to wire it together again and it's working, for now. Twenty years ago I was using simple panels that would never have broken under these circumstances. So much stuff is now over-engineered and unnecessarily complicated.

20km in 9 hours but our final session was relatively good, a harbinger of abating sastrugi we hope.
