Jade's Quest Greenland Crossing

Cold overnight and together with the dusk the temperature in the tent was pretty frosty.

Faces masked against a strong headwind we headed east into the sun, using it to navigate a magnetic bearing of 130?. By 2pm, just after lunch, it hung over our right shoulders casting our shadows to the left.

Today was the first day we saw no other teams and we felt we had Greenland to ourselves. We are on the world's second largest icecap and between us and the east coast lies almost 500km of ice, and an abandoned US military station called Dye II, a relic of the Cold War. Decommissioned in the 80's the radar station was part of an early warning system built across the Arctic to detect missiles from Russia.

Despite nasty blisters on Paul's feet he managed the 7+ hours though the last was a hobble and we covered a bees dick short of 19km.
