Day 19 - The Day After
As one can imagine, it took quite a bit of digging to extricate the sleds and other expedition equipment from the stubborn snowdrifts that transformed our team's campsite into a frigid sculpture garden. Despite the extra work, everyone was ready early this morning since "a nice little wind" had presented itself at daybreak. The temperature at 07:45 was a fresh -21°C.
The day after a storm forces any polar expedition team to reorient and make decisions based upon the time lost while waiting for Mother Nature to grant a green light. Our group's resilience, demonstrated on multiple occasions during this expedition, has proven once again to be a valuable asset.
In his very brief update this morning, Dixie stated "All is well."
Enough said. It was time to launch the kites and get moving.
