Over a years worth of planning and preparation and now with only 3 weeks to go, we’re getting the last few bits and pieces sorted.
It was recommended to us by an experienced expeditionist to get some neoprene food pouches for our meal packs, to keep the heat in longer and making them nicer to hold. So Molly has been busy cutting up her old wetsuit and putting her sewing skills to the test…
We have 2 leg pouches, a crotch pouch and 2 waist pouches, who will draw the short straw!
Jesse has been to get some final modifications to his ski boots, they need to be as comfortable as possible to make living in them for a month more bearable. Our trip to Norway was hugely beneficial to iron out all the little niggles with equipment.
Jen has been getting out and putting some long days in in Scotland, getting super fit! Ollie has also been getting out in the snow in Scotland walking, skiing, climbing etc.
And Alistair has been busy with maps! In the final few weeks we’ll be putting together a more detailed day to day plan with routes, distances, timings etc. Below is an example of a few layers we’ll have on our GPSs..
Check in for our outbound flights is now open, which means we can start to getting stupidly excited!!! Our park permit, radio permit and firearms permit are all in place..we’re all set….
