Report from Kangerlussuaq and pictures from the expedition

Day 21: Heading for the west coast

Strong breeze Some snow
66.69917°N -47.14788°W | 1857 m | Distance today: 31km | Total distance: 421km of approx. 600km

166 km is left to the west coast. We covered another 31 km today. Wind from behind and good skiing conditions. Øystein had to fix up his BC ski binding tonight, as a result of icing. We also spotted one of  the "Hvitserk"- expeditions using a team of dogs, just 2 km away from us.
The correct answer to our competition is of course Øystein- who has got no blisters. The lucky winner is Torbjørn Bakke, who will soon receive 200g of chocolate, which has been crossing the Greenlandic ice cap. Congratulation! Another competition:

How many litres of heptan (petrol, gasolin) are left at the moment? Vi had an amount of 46 l when we started off. The reward is our pack of cards (deck of cards), nicely illustrated with Greenlandic motives. Please leave your answer in the commentary square! 

It´s guite windy this evening, but we haven´t built any shelter-wall. Inger has been thinking of going to the South Pole, but she is not that sure any more. We are grateful to you for all your greetings!
