I'm happy to be here alone on the ice but sad not to be with my family. I've phoned around and they are all enjoying each others company.
I'm struggling on. Did another 28 kms yesterday which is good. The terrain is bumpy and irregular and progress is hard.
I'm not sleeping so well these days as I find it too hot in the tent. Last night I didn't even get into my sleeping bag and of course there is continual daylight which is not condusive to sleep.
I'm happy to be here in this amazing scenery. What an amazing world we live in!
Wishing you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS!"
