Yep, he had to change his plans about Inuvik after the offshore ice blew away as seen in the photo below!
He also hired a local on a snowmachine as an escort.

Sjaak Left Barrow Alaska and has ridden the ice and now "landed" in Deadhorse. His final destination will be Key West. He wants to be, and I believe unless of some failure during the remaining portion of this trip, the first person to drive from the northern most town in the US to the southern most town in the US. It has been quite an adventure with a lot of setbacks along the way. This has been quite a trek for him so far.

He's posting on Facebook. I thinks it's Sjaak's polar ride or something like that. Clymer manuals is his major sponsor so you can find him there, too. They have a link to his polar ride.

He was scheduled to leave Barrow more than a month ago. Took longer than anticipated to get all the kinks worked out.
