Hi everyone, so another 11 hours skied today. Found another never-ending hill. The route is all uphill but some parts are more noticeable than others. It was windy too, about 30-35 miles per hour. A headwind, so I had my hood up with my fur ruff creating a tunnel for my face for protection. Tough day but still good progression.
So, I have written notes on all of my food bags as some motivation for me mainly things that other people have said to me or written on my posts before I left and todays food bag says “you’re a role model to those that were told no”.
So I was told no a lot of the time and I ignored it most of the time. I was more often than not discouraged to push boundaries and was often labelled disrespectful for voicing my opinions. I was labelled the rebel for doing things out of the norm. But I think we create our own normal.
Right now my normal is being on an expedition in Antarctica. Normal can be whatever you want it to be. And surrounding yourself with people that believe in you, I know I’m on my own out here but I also know that there are so many people who believe in me and are supporting me. Thankyou everyone for all of your support and I look forward to reading everyone’s messages when I’m back.
This post is dedicated to Antarctica. Thank you for allowing me to be here. I am and will always be forever grateful.
