Sunday we managed to cover a decent distance. However, the storm seems to build up quite a bit. We are being given good advice from our mentor Lars back in Norway, via iridium sat phone. Just now, Monday evening, winds are at 20m/s outside the tent. And it is expected that it will increase during the night.. We have built a wall of snow in front of the tent to provide some protection. Also, we have set the sleds in a v-formation, giving additional shealter.
Based on the weather forecast, we will probably by staying in camp for two days. This is not positive with respect to the overall distance we have left, but we hope to do some ski-sailing in between the strong winds.
For now, all we can to do is to rest inside our sleeping bags and wait for the storm to pass.
