It felt really, REALLY good to be on the move today. Conditions were good, perhaps a little cool and sometimes breezy, at least enough to cut through their layers, but nothing bad enough to prevent travel. And travel, they did!

They put in a great first day, skiing 29 kms in 5 pushes. It took the team a while to break camp this morning because they needed to dig out not only their tents, but the two dogsleds. Yesterdays storm was a whopper and there were huge drifts. Everyone was tired at the end of the day, but feeling really good. They suspect it will take a few days to regain their ski legs.

May 18th-on the move Took a while to dig out of camp. On trail 930. Skied 29 km, at 7250 elevation, into a cross/head wind gusting to 25-30 kph. I remain as alway so amazed at Dale, so incredibly strong #myhero. Almost 20 years post heart transplant!! Made camp beside the dogs and listened to their braying as they got fed. Spectacular beasts led by Salo, a legend in Greenland; and Julius. 
Cooking up spaghetti in a bag that won’t expire till 2047. Yum! Shout out to Outdoor Research for making exceptional gear!!
