Welcome to the Polar Inspiration Expedition!
Today was the first official day of the expedition. We checked gear and went for a quick ski to work out any last minute kinks with boots, skis and bindings. While we were out we saw several competitors racing toward the finish line of the annual local dogsled competition.
We had dinner and caught up with old friends who we met on the training. Tomorrow we will check review our kit one more time, pack our sleds and deliver them to the airport in advance of our flight to the ice on April 14.
Stay tuned for another update tomorrow!
