The wind blew unrelenting from the south and continues now, the rear of the tent flaps madly as I type. Aside from a spell of dappled sunshine this morning our hours were spent groping our way in the murk. Fortunately I have spent many days, if not months, in such low light conditions and relish the route finding challenges over the varied icescape. My 13 years on this ocean has developed in me a mind map that enables me to predict the nearby route ahead by the feel of what's below my ski tips. It's exhilarating but ultimately exhausting.

We're all exhausted tonight, backs, legs and arms ache, Seamus and Heath feel the consequences of their injuries keenly and Nacer fell heavily on his back 2 days ago. My knee and elbow could be better. But behind us lay another 25 km with another 65km to the North Pole. We are flying! Eric

Casinos promote responsible gambling by providing resources such as helplines and support groups for those who may be struggling with addiction. Additionally, they implement measures such as age restrictions and self-exclusion programs to ensure that gaming remains a safe and enjoyable activity for all patrons. 범죄도시4
