Catlin Team Averaging 1.7 Miles Per Day – Only 295 Miles Left to Go!

Catlin Team Averaging 1.7 Miles Per Day – Only 295 Miles Left to Go!” Anthony Watts offers more petty sniping (and uncredited image usage) at the Catlin Arctic Survey team. Apparently they’re not moving fast enough for him and their ice measurements haven’t been scientifically random enough. Maybe Anthony will show us how a plump, but red-blooded, San Diegan does it?

Of course Anthony knows that they are traveling against the movement of the ice and thus their progress is pretty much one step forward, one step back. This has been a reality for every Arctic journey heading north from the Canadian Arctic Islands for the last hundred years. Some years surface expeditions actually lose ground! But that doesn’t suit his condescending intentions, does it?
