SPEC Expedition

  As you know, we have reached The Mountains and taken the opportunity to rest and recover. This way point represents close to halfway. The team was far more tired than we thought after the past non-stop 25 days. There is nothing here but a small ice...

  Today may have been the first “down day” that we have had since starting the SPEC Expedition. The intention was to edit, categorize and upload all images and videos of the trek so far. Technology was not on our side and neither were the atmospherics. We were not...
