16-5-09. Day 8 on the ice (I think). Following the enforced stay in the tents for 36 hours, the team awoke to sunshine and bird song. We walked the morning for 3 hours, we then pitched tents for an afternoon snooze in the baking sun. We walked again until midnight, when we were seriously frozen and tired. The sunset was spectacular, but too out of it to really take it in. Today we managed 25km for the first time by having three teachers with the dogs a three skiing for 4 hours…progress. Good luck to all the students starting their exams, hope the family have a nice weekend.
