Preparation & Waiting


After waiting a few days doing preparation and testing everything is going ok although I’m bit annoyed my ski pants are a bit tight after a ten week intensive fat-athon.  Does my bum look big in these ski pants – you bet!

Unfortunately they are a bit restrictive and a bit tight and this isn’t good as when the wind blows, you can’t get enough insulation between your clothing and your muscles.

At Hercules Inlet there is big snow; it will be very hard and very slow and the trip should be a bit longer because of this, especially compared to previous years when there hasn’t been as much snow. 

This is a bit apprehensive for me as I’m hoping to do around 45 days although now it maybe a bit longer.

I was going to be dropped off tomorrow but the forecast is for extremely high winds therefore I may decide in the morning to delay for 24 hours.

Not long now before the clock will start clicking on the website.

Hope everyone’s well and I will keep in touch with more news soon.
