Guys! We are 55nm from Canadian soil. We do 10nm today. The “Arctic Donkeys” are back to the routine of “push & pull” a boat on the frozen ocean.
The highlight of the day? Tonight, the three of us are inside our sleeping bags eating dinner when Seb suddenly sees something right of the back of the boat.
“Polar bear!!” He jumps in the cockpit with the pepper spray in hand. The bear is 10 feet away. I prepare an extra flare and give it to Eric. Seb sprays straight at him. Off he goes, running in the distance and rolling in the ground. Pepper spray in the nose isn’t the best perfume you get.
