Hi everyone, just checking in for day 3. Still feeling good, its getting winder now and I find myself gripping tightly onto my items. The last thing I want is anything to get blown away by the wind, like my down jacket that I put on every time I stop for a break. I dont stop for more than 10 minutes at a time as it just gets cold. The tent also takes a little bit longer to put up in the wind and as soon as I’m in the tent its time for my admin. Melting snow so I can have water and cook my food, doing my daily check-in calls, any personal and kit admin and go to sleep.
I want to thank a few people from the Army who’ve been fantastic with their support. Specifically, Col Neil Wilson, Col Chris Coates and Lt Col Dougie Peters, who has now retired and Mike Fisher. They have all been so helpful and I want to say thank you for all of your support. And a special thank you to Adventure Training Group which is an incredible organisation that assists adventure training and expeditions like this across the British Army. Huge thanks from me.
That’s all for tonight.
