We’re On Our Way!

Hauling for Health: NWT 2018

This was the last pre-expedition day before setting out on the trail tomorrow.

Despite my desire to be as minimalist as possible with gear and equipment Scellig the sled appears to have gained a lot of weight in the last 24 hours.

Scellig will be carrying more than he had planned and Hobnails is not so happy as a result of having the pull this extra gear.

Hobnails is quietly thinking of eating lots of food early on to lighten the load but not too much to be overly attractive to the polar bears and distract them from the seals.

I would like to thank the many people who have contributed enormously to help the team getting to the start here in Cambridge Bay.

Without the advice, experience and generosity of the many friends and colleagues who have given so much in terms of sharing knowledge, experience and expertise .. this expedition would not have come together.

Thanks so much to you all!

Now it’s in the hands of Hobnails, the support team on the ice and the spirits of the NW Passage.

Hope you join us on the adventure!!
