I think the biggest culture shock when back in London this month will be suppressing the urge to wave at everyone I see in the street.
The winners of the 2014 Adventure Fund are announced here: sidetracked.com/news/adventure…. Thanks to all who applied – it was a very tough decision!

Read 'Maybe'? We'd love to read your thoughts in an Amazon review. First 5 (pls contact us) get 'Maybe' to give away & 'The Long Haul' free.

Flawless performance with our gear from suppliers over past fiveish months, except @IridiumComm. Endless dropped calls. Sort it out guys.
To answer peoples' questions, the dogs are going in 2s and 3s to various hunters in the local settlements. Dave returned to Rasmus today.
Having control over your dogs on a narrow ice foot like this is...useful. The sea was totally frozen the day before. pic.twitter.com/5OQQEqJLfe

All back in Qaanaaq - lots of open water today & winds died down enough to allow us a route home. Our last journey complete. Happy and sad.
windy windy. i suppose our five months of calm weather needed to end! near fifty mph and ice broken... now awaiting improvement.
Tomorrow we're setting off on our final extended journey - this time to the west on newly frozen sea ice and hopefully into new territory.
Looking ahead to the second half of 2014- exciting plans afoot in the outdoor equipment sector. What outdoor kit do you want cheaper/better?

I'm no cricketer, but if you want to improve your batting average, you should go and play against the local school's 2nd XII. #paths #choice
Today we're off to see a man about a fish. More specifically, a man's fishing spot 12 miles from Qaanaaq and 200kg of fish. Hak, hak!
