Day 8 – At the top of the world

Four Carneys at the North Pole!

Four Carneys at the North Pole!

At 5:15pm today our hard work paid off and we arrived at our North Pole! I say our North Pole because the ice sheet is constantly shifting and so it was only exactly 90 degrees N at the moment we first arrived. Many pictures, video, and stories to come once we return to civilization. For now I’ll just say I’m so grateful for the opportunity to be here and extremely thankful for my family, my co-workers, and my girlfriend Olivia who made this trip possible.

Thanks for following along with this adventure!

      your adventure has allowed me to travel to the N P with you–a trip I will never have in real life. the shifting ice flows sound frightning to me but am proud of your adventure’s success. anne wilson
