Uh oh. We've been having unseasonably warm temps all the way up to Barrow.
"Dear Polar Ice Ride Adventure followers. Finally the moment of leaving the Top of the World is in sight. The wind which blows the snow over the ice will soon go down. This same wind brought movement in the ice on the west coast of Barrow and what was a thick ice layer of ice before, turned over night into open water. But I go to the east, together with Lioyd, a guide/escort which I hired with his snow machine. Apart from bringing safety he could also tow my sled if necessary. This way I can spare my motorcycle which can barely pull the heavy load. As soon as Lioyd gives the okay we leave from the Top of the World. Will it happen this time?
Until … Sjaak"
What was ice and snow in the distance is now open ocean.
