Today was a little shorter than usual, started skiing around noon so no weekend relaxing going on. I had to work on fixing the skins underneath my skis this morning as the epoxy-glue was too cold last night.
So I fixed all that this morning, did some drilling and cut and glued the skin so now I have skins under half my skis which means I can get more sliding in each step. It was very windy last night and one of my sled was almost covered in snow when I woke up. I traveled 10.8 km (6.7 miles) in 6 hours.
I want to send special thanks to my friends at 66° Norður for amazing clothing and for all their support.
Windy regards from Antarctica.
