Sad about the bear. We were probably the only humans it will ever see and its last chance of a meal and a point in the right direction. We are 25 miles offshore and the bear was probably out on the pack ice when it melted.

We passed the latitude of Point Barrow - Alaska - this afternoon at about 1300 central time. Sadly, the GPS seems to have gone on strike and dumped all its trip data so can't give you distance. That's the problem with low budget extravaganzas. Don't know why.

We have decided to head for Nuuq - no jokes please, Dr Price! - to break the journey, fix a few things and find some Carlsberg.
