It's been another fantastic day out here on the Arctic Ice. The team progressed 17 kms today with clear blue skies and virtually no wind. We are following the coastline of an island next to pack ice. The YEPs are doing really well and are highly motivated to get to the Magnetic North Pole. We have 101kms to go until we reach the 80° and before the twin otters will fly in and pick us up. If we keep an average of 15 kms a day we'll get there with no problems. Just a few Arctic Fox tracks around but still no bears. We are managing to avoid the open water and our furry friends for now. Let's hope it stays that way.
