The team took to their skis today at 9:30am and traveled until 6pm, covering 18km. They got their heir first glimpse of the famous Greenland wind today, but it was just that, a glimpse. However, the 25mph (40kph) winds were a good test of their layering systems, and the wind took the felt temperature down around -15F. Today's experience will surely pay off in the coming weeks. The weather outlooks for their next few days is calmer and colder.
Everyone's feet are finally breaking into their boots (or the other way around) and they are eager to put more miles behind them tomorrow.
