The day was vastly improved with arcs of sunlight washing the surrounding mountains, the first we've seen of them. We finished sled packing so went for a ski up a gully near town, which made for good practice as the surface conditions changed from hard ice to snowy slope to bumpy track, mimicking in a small way what we'll experience on the Arctic Ocean. It was a good test for my right knee which was operated on less than six weeks ago to remove some ragged meniscus. It seemed to hold up ok but ask me after 8 hours of clambering over pressure ridges!

Tonight we formed a sewing circle and lengthened ski pole straps (Heath and Seamus are giants) and added a fur ruff to the hood of Nacer's shell jacket.

We hope to fly tomorrow arvo but there have been some delays, one of them being inclement weather at Barneo Ice Camp where the temporary runway is constructed.

23.30. Yawn! Night night.

As they say, the devil is in the details… And that couldn’t be much more accurate here. Having said that, let me tell you exactly what did give good results. The article (parts of it) is certainly rather powerful and this is possibly the reason why I am making the effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, although I can easily notice a jumps in logic you make, I am not really certain of exactly how you appear to connect your ideas that produce the actual final result. For the moment I will yield to your point however wish in the near future you actually link the dots much better. צימרים בטבריה
