Day 27, 30/11/07 - Patagonia Northern Icecap

2:15am weather check, Ben was in a bad mood, swearing that we weren't quick enough out of the tents; like we were really going to go anywhere today?! Hmm I think not. The weather was horrific blowing an absolute gale, a total white-out and persistent sleety snow.

We had lessons in the boy's tent, Jaya & Ben handed responsibility for the expedition over to us, so we got the maps out to plan our route. It was agreed that we all wanted to still aim for the North to South route. Through-out the day we had to keep rebuilding the wall, the sleet and wind seemed to be destroying it quite rapidly.
