The remaining five : Copeland & McNair, Gamme and Cas & Jonesy
Published on 23.01.2012 - General Info
For these remaining five expeditioners, the news are not that good. We have no news from pair Copeland/McNair. the Aussies are still a bit far. And as far as Norwegian Gamme is concerned, he has the last mountain range in sight. But has almost no food left in the sledge.
So these last days become a bit crucial for these five people.
We do not know what happens with pair Copeland/McNair : or they are kiting like mads and taking no time to sleep and want to make a big surprise when they'll touch the ice of Hercules Inlet. Or they are tentbounded somwhere and thus too depressed (or have no more batteries) to communicate with the outside world. Their last position published though is South 85°18.529 - West 83°54.900, with an elevation of 4.551 feet (Hercules Inlet' position : South 80°50′ - West 78°30′). So if they did not move since their last blog, they still have today (23 January 2012) another five degrees to cover, or 555 kilometers. Quite a tough challenge.
For Justin Jones and James Castrission, their server is temporarily out of use -Bandwidth Limit Exceeded, says the site! But when we had still news from them they were still far from HI.
As far As Aleksander Gamme is concerned, the Norwegian TO has the mountains of Patriot Hills and Hercules Inlet well is sight. But still, he has to find his last cache to get some more food because, in his sled it seems that he does not have any left...
