The Barometer has fallen all day – gusting winds, – 20 windchill to -30; wind > 25 mph – we did not get out of the tents all day.

We had + drift to start but now are moving away again being carried by the under-ice current away from the Pole.

It is a long day in the tent – napping, chatting, playing connect 4.
Some of our challenges over the week have included 3 broken ski bindings (2 for Dale, one for Michel); one broken tent pole (we carried 2 spares), I punctured my thermarest cutting cheese (patched – or it would have been a cold night); one broken ski pole.

But all in all we remain optimistic that the weather pattern will clear and we will make a push later tonight or early in the morning.
