A 7am start after our late night had us on the ice by just after 9 and we reached DYE II by 11. We were not alone at the giant structure that looks like a cross between the Taj Mahal and some weird bug-eyed giant insect. Part of the Norwegian team was camped there, awaiting an evacuation flight, as well as a team from the US army on winter training and a scientific group studying surface melt.

Inside was a horrible stinky mess. Twenty two years ago it had been seldom visited since its 1988 decommission and could have been preserved as a monument but now multiple teams per season have left their mark with contents of the station strewn all over the place, windows broken, graffiti everywhere and unflushable toilets full of shit, recent shit. What an abomination. Glad to be camped 15km away and out of sight.

We crossed the Arctic Circle at DYE II and are now in the sub-Arctic. Tomorrow we up the ante and begin 8 hours of hauling which should give us 24km.
