Left camp a bit ahead of schedule and pushed down the gut of a steady 40 kph headwind with higher gusts. Greenland looked like my worst 70’s disco dry ice nightmare extravaganza memory, with blowing snow to knee and mid thigh, giving the appearance of ‘constant ground in motion’.

We did 3 pushes and then called it. 17.1 km, 8005 feet elevation (when is the ** damn top???). Hard to describe temperature. Likely -15 and with windchill?-40??

Set camp, all hands on deck, one tent at a time, given wind, and now safely tucked in. All fingers and toes accounted for.

Dogs are seemingly impervious! Julius and Salo stayed within visual contact throughout the day, though as I got tired they began to look more and more like a mirage.

  1. Safety first! Glad to hear you’re all tucked in. Hopefully you’ll be going downhill soon and catch a break with this seemingly unforgiving weather!

  2. Hey Heath,

    Don’t know if this helps, but the Beach Home in Bermuda is all booked for Sunday, February 24, 2019 to Sunday, March 3, 2019. Might be a bit warmer than what your are experiencing now…..:{)
