Left Camp 11 at 8:20 am. It was clear but sastrugi were filled in with soft snow. We were hopping from ridge to ridge to avoid the soft spots. We led in 30 min turns as it was very tiring. We did 23.7 kms today and are now at Camp 12. We are 1/3 done. Bright sun is out. The team is doing well. Batteries are always running low, so I will update when I can. Medical update: Several people with various facial exposure due to constant reflection from the snow and sun. I have dried and blistered lips, Eric has swollen eyes, Bernice has swollen lips and skin. All in good spirits from team CANDU. Camp 12 location South 84.26 west 076.01.
