A strong wind buffeted our tents all night but pushed us north 5km. Can't complain about the restless night if it takes us to our destination. Restless because strong wind has the greatest effect on the ice, cracking it, separating it, pressurising it, and I want to be able to hear it if it cracks under our tents.
After lunch we met with a dog sled team who flew out with us on the 9th but we're dropped at 88.40, about 35km ahead of us. They'd been stymied for a couple of days in a bad area of pressure and open water which we managed to pass easily with our lighter and more manoeuvrable system, and now camp a couple of k's ahead of them. The chance meeting burst our bubble a little but also fun to bump into people in such a remote place. Eric.

Because of surfing around throughout the world wide web and coming across tricks which were not helpful, I figured my entire life was done. Being alive minus the strategies to the issues you’ve solved as a result of your good article is a critical case, and the kind that would have in a wrong way affected my entire career if I had not discovered your site. Your main know-how and kindness in touching all things was excellent. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t come upon such a subject like this. I’m able to now look ahead to my future. Thanks very much for this reliable and result oriented help. I won’t be reluctant to recommend the blog to anyone who needs and wants support on this issue. 먹튀사이트
