TWO MEN, ONE GOAL
01 November 2011

DAY 1 AND 2

Albert and Carles phone call the early of the 1st of November:

"On Sunday 31st of October we iniciated our journey with delay because of the bad weather and with only 9,25 Km. progress in three hours.

We already expected that we would have a very though job ahead of us. Strong winds against us are common and they will be with us at least for the next 400 Km. that we have left until we reach a massive plateau at 3.000 metres.

So far is hard to mount and dismount our tent. The strong wind gusts makes it incredibly difficult and time consuming.

Monday the 31st was even worse, We only moved 10 Km. in 6 hours with a height difference of 300 meters.

In the steep slopes we moved first together one sledge and the other one. We overturned a few times because the terrain is sometimes abrupt and there is also little ice waves called SASTRUGUIS making a very unstable progress again, with strong wind gusts windward.

In a nutshell: If this carries on like that, we will spend a good two months!!

Hola amic,
Et recordo els 7 factors del teu llibre "Esperit d'Aventura", recollits per tot el món amb tots tipus d'aventures i iniciatives empresarials, visquen situacions com las que ara descrius i trovan l'equilibri per sortir endavant :
1. La incertesa
2. El risc
3. Èxit i fracàs
4. La Intuïció
5. L'ambició
6. La solitud
7. La bona sort
Ben convinats i reflexionats, segur que trobareu la motivació per continuar sempre endavant.
Una abarçada.
