Eleven hours kite/skiing each day

Swedish Tour Operator Aleksander Gamme seems to be overwrought with his ending of the trek.
Of course one can easily understand that in such circumstances, an expeditioner who is slowly putting and end to his expedition -moreover a return trek- is getting nervous about the way things will unfold for the next days to come before reaching Hercules Inlet.
That's why Gamme is pushing hard : he is skiing or kiting or kite/skiing not less than 11 hours every day, performing 40, 47, 45 and 37 kil the last four days. A good result. But, apparently it's not enough for the swedish tour operator. He is adding more concentration every day, being extremely afraid of doing something wrong, something that could slow him down and that could force him to call for a plane, being not able to reach HI on time.
Fortunately his sled is 50 kilos lighter than a few weeks ago when he was kiting in the opposite direction, being on his way to the South Pole.
