Hi Everyone. Another tough day again today . . .
Unfortunately due to poor signal Preet’s message message dropped out after 7 seconds today. She is in good health and will announce the next school winner tomorrow.
The journey so far:
Preet is 44 days, 15 hours into the expedition and has just passed the 88th degree. Her last GPS update showed that she has travelled 556.92 miles so far, solo and unassisted. She is rapidly closing in on the Pole and will likely reach it within the next 10 days.
The weather is currently -24 degrees centigrade and visibility has been poor for a lot of her journey so far. Despite the cold temperatures the snow is soft, which is making dragging the pulk harder and slowing her down. Some days she is walking for 15 hours to cover the distance needed.
Once she reaches the Pole, she will turn towards the coast for the final phase of the expedition which includes a glacier crossing before she hits the coast.
