The 10 K ski team reached the North Pole after traveling 16 km (fickle Polar ice being what it is...).  They arrived late Saturday evening and spent the night at the North Pole.  They encountered various conditions throughout the day but were ecstatic to reach the Pole.  They were picked up by helicopter Sunday and flew back to Barneo, then on to Longyearbyen.

The 3 ski last degree ski teams (Team Cool Running led by CP and Taylor, Team Polaris led by Annie and Eric, and Team Yellow led by Keith and Andrew) all made good progress, all camping at N 89° 23, E 108, 107 and 105.67 respectively.  Conditions were good today with some pressure ridges, rubble fields, mix of sun and overcast, minimal wind, -18° C temps but no open water.
