Polarrev Diary - by Sarah Phillips

"After a bitterly windy night, we left camp to progress further towards Fulmadalen. The wind was still angrily nipping at us and we had to rug up well, trying desperately not to expose and skin to the unforgiving wind.
The journey was fairly simple as we rarely strayed from the skidoo tracks across the flat terrain. Ben suggested we camp at 1630 at the junction where Sassendalen meets Fulmadalen (056076, 868732) as many of us needed an early day since the wind really saps a lot of energy out of you."
