A look back in numbers…

A look back in numbers…

It was strange getting into Rankin Inlet. We had our final fantastic day of skiing, beating our record for distance in less than pleasant conditions. But once we arrived, it took a while to settle in that we wouldn’t be skiing any more, for now at least. We would soon be leaving the world of […]

The final challenge!

The final challenge!

In the end it was a fitting way to conclude the expedition. We challenged ourselves to beat our record distance for a day by going about 23.5km; temperatures had gone back down to close to -20C, and the winds from the previous day had not died down too much so we had a headwind coming […]

Getting there…

Getting there…

62.6129N,92.1709W=0A=0AIt has been pretty steady since leaving Whale Cove – around 10 nautical miles a day through cloudy and breezy conditions. Today was pleasing as we managed 10km in the first three hours (normally we mange around 8 or 9) and this was in spite of lots of curves to go round headlands and rough […]

Having to put up with a layer of thick white cloud above us has probably been the hardest part – it has been constant the last few days and it makes seeing obstacles in […]

Closer to Whale Cove

61.6592N,93.4409W=0A=0AAfter three days of blizzards and whiteouts, it was good to get out of the tent again a couple of days ago. The snow that had fallen though really did make life tough – a good deep layer to pull out pulks through made us pleased to travel 15km on Saturday. =0A=0AOur bodies really did […]

Towards Whale Cove

Towards Whale Cove

61.3871N,93.7434W=0A=0APatience is certainly a virtue in this environment. After a good couple of days when we travelled around 36km from Arviat, we have been confined to the tent in very poor weather for past days – in spite of forecasts saying getting slightly “warmer”!. It is indeed warmer today but the cold and warm weather […]
