Yesterday morning (May 5) our friends crossing the Greenland glacier had strong winds and serious snowdrift. Therefore they decided it would be better to rest rather than spend energy fighting the storm. They estimate that they have 3 more days to go before they get to the top of the glacier at 2,400 meters. When the top of the ice cap is reached their route is mostly flat and descending. There are little more than 200 km before they get to DYE2 the glacier’s only landmark. It’s expected to be there in nine days but depends on how the next for days will give. The good news is that the weather forecast shows less wind in the next few days. Yesterday’s main task was to finish all the leftovers from the days before. Everyone is still in good health and in good spirits.
