DAY 2 09/05/2015 IN THE CLAWS OF SAWYER.

DAY 2 09/05/2015 IN THE CLAWS OF SAWYER.

An intense 11 hours day... Started the day carrying our equipment towards the ice. On this kind of unsupported expedition, we were not able to carry all our gear in one go, so we needed to load half of it on our back and travel two times back and forth.

Walking in average steep terrain do not usually bother us the walk but things got different as we had a 30-40 kilos backpack. However, we were glad to reach the ice few hours later. We even started to pull our sleds, thinking that we could progress nicely. Well... not really ! Very short distance covered for many hours of hard labor. The ice in Sawyer is vey challenging as we navigate hardly in between the cracks and the pools which constantly surrounded us. "Tough !" declared Borge. We still managed to find a camp and pitch our home. We were in the claws of Sawyer but both determined to fight and progress on this wild piece.
