Phase 2 – day 18

Hi everyone. Good visibility today which was helpful while I was making my way through the sastrugi. Felt like a bit of a maze. I am still wearing long skins on my ski’s which help me grip. I will change them over to my short skins as soon as my pulk starts to feel lighter. Been tough so far but I’m doing ok, just concentrating on each day at a time.

This post goes out to Louis Rudd (@louisrudd), he was the first polar explorer I told about my aim to cross Antarctica back around Dec 2019. I actually had his number for a few months before I contacted him, I didn’t have any experience at this point and was nervous to tell him about what I wanted to do. So I did my research beforehand and booked my first polar course in Norway. Anyway, I had nothing to worry about, Louis was great and has been so helpful. Thank you Louis for not laughing at my crazy idea and thank you for all of your support.

And if you have an idea, no matter what it is or how crazy it seems, take the first step.
