Ten metres
Camp 10/12, Thorleif reports: Well, we are still here. The wind has died
down considerably, but still with total white-out and some snow. There are
no chance to even contemplate trying the pass.
But, today we at least got some exercise. We have gotten a frightening 2
metres of snow and the tent was as good as buried. So at noon we all got out
and started digging. It took us some 4 hours to clear the tent, and move it
ten metres.
Now we are back on our backs. Here on the inside our living space has
doubled, outside it is still light snow, and we just relax, have a good time
and are eagerly awaiting tomorrow. Will we get the break?
