South Pole, Settling In: Expedition Life and Riddles

Updated: Mar 3, 2021

The team made another great push toward the pole today, traveling 8 nautical miles over 6 hours. They woke up to overcast conditions that lasted throughout their time on trail, but after making camp the blue sky began to break through again. Everyone is getting used to the rhythm of the trail; Wake up, eat, ski, eat, ski, eat, ski, make camp, eat, sleep...

The hours of skiing begin to meld together and become easier as the body gets accustomed to the work. Keith has begun testing their minds with riddles to pass the time and they'd like to share them with you to see if you can help them out. Here are the first four.

Day 1: What 8 letter word can have a letter taken away and it still makes a word. Take another letter away and it still makes a word. Keep on doing that until you have one letter left. What is the word?

Day 2: Can you name three consecutive days without using the words Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday?

Day 3: My life can be measured in hours, I serve by being devoured. Thin, I am quick. Fat, I am slow. Wind is my foe. What am I?

Day 4: Two fathers and two sons went fishing one day. They were there the whole day and only caught 3 fish. One father said, that is enough for all of us, we will have one each. How can this be possible?
