Today was the most difficult first full day of a North Pole trip that I've had. Poor visibility, wind in the face, pressure and a big open lead that stymied our northern advance. Much of our travel was to the west, crossing many subsidiary cracks throughout the day, often using our sleds as rafts, bridges and buoyancy aids. The photo is of us using two sleds rafted together to cross some thin ice.

I'm feeling the pinch having had surgery on my right knee two months ago and not being able to reach my usual fitness. I'm fast enough but have lost a lot of power and agility. But I can't really complain having two wounded soldiers on the team, both of whom skied to the South Pole in 2013. Nacer has climbed Everest but this is his first foray onto polar ice and he's doing a great job. Eric
