Hi everyone, checking in from day 2, all going well so far. A lot of elevation in this bit of the journey but im getting through it. Completed just over nine hours today, wind was coming up from the South West so I had my hood up with my fur ruff to protect my face. There are a few waypoints that are relatively close together to follow in this first part and thats to avoid crevasses. To navigate I take a bearing from my GPS and I use my compass. I have a map too but that’s just so I can visualise where I am.
I want to say a huge thank you to my expedition manager, Louis Rudd. I first met Louis two years ago and I have just learnt so much from him. I just want to say thank you for all of your support and advice, it is so great being on the ice at the same time as you. Louis is also on the ice on the Hercules Inlet to South Pole route but he’s about 5 days ahead. Although I haven’t seen any trail mix for me to follow yet so I’ll keep looking out for that!
Thats all for tonight!
