A Message From the Wild

Ant and Louis are regularly contacting the team back at home via satellite phone.This blog was sent back to England, 20 words at a time by Ant. You can’t question their dedication! Picture if you will a coffin. Maybe a pine one like the ones of the old westerns, or perhaps it’s a regal one fit for a king [...]

See Ya On the Flipside

We landed in the frozen north at midday on the 29th of March. Our local guide and host Ted Irniq and his wife Sonia were already in the airport waiting for us. Somehow the gods had smiled on us and all 8 pieces of our luggage including 2 pulks, skis, 70 freeze dried dinners and a plethora of other [...]

Groundhog Day

  (Digging the tent out of a snow drift) The storm that hit us raged for three days. With only thirty days of food and fuel, we continued to push each of these days covering as much ground as possible.

Turning in

  After making our way out of the crevasse fields we continued our climb up onto the icecap negotiating smaller but much deeper and deadly looking crevasses and melt water rivers that appeared during the day only to freeze again at night.
