So I’m on day 1. I cant believe I’m finally on the ice and I have started the expedition.
The Twin Otter (plane) dropped me off around 4pm and I just did a few hours today. I weighed my Pulk just before leaving and its 87kg. Conditions were windy but visibility was good today.
I’ll be dedicating each blog to someone and this one goes out to my Baba Ji (my Grandad), who lived an incredible long life up to the age of 99. He moved to the UK when I was born and raised me. He always made me feel just as important in a community where I sometimes felt as though I was less. I always used to think he looked like an Indian Santa Claus, he had crystal blue eyes, a white beard and the best heart. Thank you Baba Ji for letting me know that I was just as important. I hope you’re watching down on me for this journey. That’s all for tonight.
You can see my live location and listen to my audio updates here.
