This is our second day of walking to the North Pole. We got up at 7am, we packed our camp, had breakfast and prepared our pulks. We took off at 9am and continued until 7pm, and walked solidly for 10 hours. In that time we covered 16 nautical miles, which is around 30 km. it was a very cold, but sunny day. Very bright clear sky, which is great during the day as you can see very clearly and it is warmer than normal, the only problem with a clear day and clear sky is the fact that the nights are a lot more bitter, simply because the sky doesn’t hold in the earth’s temperature.
The most remarkably thing about the day was that we found a hat. We were walking along the trail, following the trek of one of the other teams, when we came across a green felt hat with a black feather. It looked like it could have been an Austrian alpine mountaineer hat. It was just lying in the middle of the Arctic, completely out of place. We picked it up and carried it with us.
