Satellite phone message on Friday:

We made it to Nuiqsut!
But it was a struggle, fell twice and I am totally exhausted!
It is -27.4°F / -33°C as we go to sleep now.
Hope to get the axle for the sled and my other stuff tomorrow, so I can continue my trip on land!"

From Sat:
"Today we’ve put the sled on wheels behind the R1 and rode from Nuiqsut to Deadhorse.
Everything went okay!
Spontaneously I got invited at the MagTec Camp to stay overnight.
Tomorrow I’ll head south and if all goes well I’ll cross the Attigun Pass."

"This morning I left Deadhorse, I was only just on the Dalton Highway when the sled pulled my bike to the right.
Flat tire on the sled, I thought, but it turned out that the weld on the axle of the castor was broken, so that wheel was sitting crooked.
Division manager, Todd of the Deadhorse Magtec Camp told me that I could always call if anything was the matter.
So I did, and he took the sled back to his camp on a trailer.
Now everything is ready for the next attempt!"
