Due to our slow progress in the afternoons over the soft snow we decided to get up at 3:30am and start hauling at 5:00am. We woke to a freezing blizzard and total whiteout. The wind was very strong and didn’t let up all day. Nethertheless, we hauled through it for 10 hours and made 20km, not bad considering. It was very cold so our rest stops were short but not sweet and by the end of the day we were exhausted. Tomorrow’s forcast appears to be more of the same so have a moments thought for us in sunny (cough) Ireland.
