Now that Mike is on skis he is finding it a little easier to pull the sled as he has more traction to pull with. The terrain stays the same with its undulating wave-like surface.
The temperature is around -22°C today, partly cloudly, with virtually no wind at all. Mike is curious because it is so calm. He asks, "Whats cooking?" as he thinks a storm might be brewing, but no, it will continue to stay like this for the next few days.
He can see mountains far in the distance and if he looks back at the Peninsula, he can see heavy cloud and bad weather. He prefers to be where he is and is looking forward to a pleasant day walking.
