April 23rd

April 23rd (Day 22)

Current position
75 00 N
88 30 W
By the time we finished dinner and looked after our various ailments it was about 10.30 and we were still tired when we woke up in the morning. We were also pretty dehydrated from the efforts yesterday and Ian and I really suffered for the first session.

By the afternoon we had recovered but began hitting more consistent rubble. We are still a little north of the position where the ice should clear but are still surprised by the incredible density of the rubble. We'll call the Warden again tomorrow morning to clarify the situation ahead.

To allow for an early night we stopped after 12 miles. Our goal tomorrow is nearly 15 miles away –it will be incredibly tough to achieve this if the conditions don’t improve.
