Gavin arrives at the North Pole
Adventure Alternative founder and MD, Gavin Bate REACHED THE NORTH POLE at around 03:30 GMT (21:30 local time) this morning, completing his 550km expedition to ski from Resolute Bay in the Canadian Arctic to the 1996 Magnetic North pole in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago.
Gavin now just has the final 28km to ski to the former weather station at Isachsen, to be picked up by support plane tomorrow. Gavin reports being exhausted, having lost a lot of weight and that his insulating gear is choked with ice from condensed perspiration and from steam from cooking stoves.
The expedition was also raising funds for the Moving Mountains Trust, a charity that Gavin founded more than a decade ago. To follow all the details and to donate to the campaign, visit www.racemetothepole.com
