At midday the wind began to drop and the sleeting abated so we dug out the sleds and tents and edged 15km closer to the east coast. But the late afternoon brought more wind and squalls and we skied the remaining two hours under a tumultuous sky.

To our surprise a dot appeared on the horizon, exactly on our bearing - Dye II - the decommissioned American military base, one of a string of bases built across the Arctic to detect missiles from Russia during the Cold War era. Still 17km away we should reach it tomorrow afternoon.

Cosy in our tents now with the incessant wind tapping on the walls.

There were four x Dye bases in Greenland, all abandoned within a few days...so everything is there apart from computers...go sing songs up in the big dome. in a dark corridor for some reason I picked up a rubber stamp and put in my pocket...outside to my surprise all it said was "SECRET"
