Audio Diary: Charlie Birkett

Posted 6th April 2015

After a dramatic start to the headnorth trek, with an emergency crash landing and helicopter transfer, the team eventually reached their start point, 100km from the North Pole. The plane lost its landing gear but all the team are well and in good spirits. 

They walked for around 7 hours on the first day and when we spoke early on Day 2, were planning another 8-10 hours walking, with the aim of completing the trek in 5-6 days.
