After a long day Jack and I are back in Longyearbyen, Norway. We had a long day as Jack and I were airlifted in a MI8 helicopter the last 14 miles to the Geographic North Pole. Then we were quickly put on the AN74 aircraft and flown back to Longyearbyen. Jack had developed a bronchial chest infection and was having difficulty breathing due to the heavy sled he was pulling. We made the call and arrived at the North Pole this afternoon and Jack is feeling much better after taking some antibiotics and breathing warmer air.
It was an amazing trip and we want to thank all the donations to the Ice Axe Foundation and all the sponsors.(Baffin, Rab, GE, OR, Wigwam, Black Diamond, GU Energy gels, Sole, Suunto, Brunton, Life Link, Smith optics and Aloe Up. Thank you to Andrew Peters, Karyn Stanley, Lauren Garcia and of course Jack Ashton and Dennis Garcia.
