Camp 15, Thorleif reports: Another fabulous day. But luckily not as
sweltering hot as yesterday, as we have been working hard.
We ended up doing 4,5 kilometres. But that was in a straight line. We had to
take two long scouting trips to find possible routes through what is a
totally broken up icescape. It is far fro easy, pulling a sledge, being
roped up and negotiating steep ups and downs on skis. Bothe abilities and
minds have had overloads today. But we have had great fun and really enjoyed
this wild ride.
Now we are close to one of the moraines, and this is possibly our last night
on ice. Out aim is to reach the Horse Camp tomorrow, possibly by the moraine
ridge. If we do that we will be very pleased.
