Hope You are Back On TrackApril 13, 2005
We just finished dinner and enjoyed looking at your photos/journals along the way- it is hard to imagine how difficult it must be.

We hope you are staying safe and do not have anymore night visitors. We wish we could send you fresh cakes like the one your team members made before you left.

The kids really are amazed at your efforts and journey so far. We are glad you are looking out for each other and your teammate is okay.

Take care

Good LuckMarch 16, 2005
I hope you accomplish your goal. The thought of following an Arctic explorer on their expediton has made me more excited than ever. Good Luck! The luck you need is probably not much because of your experience and skill. Although you must have traveled in cold weather before I'm sure this is different in some way. It must be a very big adventure but I know you can do it. I hope this whole letter motivates you! I know this is a big journey. You have motivated many people like me to like adventures. GOOD LUCK!
Svena
March 16, 2005
I' ve only had Adventure on Mountain like seeing snakes! An adventure in the arctic. Mostly I think about animals. Did you see any Polar bears! Did you see a dog sled? I really wish you good luck.

First of all congratulations with your completion of your expedition 2004 Greenland icecap. It is always nice to read about somebodies expedition, because of the recalling of your own expeditions. And it was really noce to have Noriko at our home in Ilulissat. I wish I could read japanese, so I could get some information on your japanese website. Congratulations again from Karo and Ono.
