June 4th, 2014 Day 56: Mission Accomplished!
Dixie and Eric called this morning at 03:45 their time (07:45 in Belgium) to announce that they had not only completed the circumnavigation late last night, but that they continued and were at their final campsite of the expedition at Greenspeed Ridge. After 4044.9 kilometers, the Greenland ICE Expedition is over!
Here is our raw announcement …
On April 10, 2014, Dixie Dansercoer (Belgium) and Eric McNair-Landry (Canada) began the Greenland ICE Expedition. Their goal: to be the first unassisted, non-motorized team to circumnavigate the Greenland Icecap. Late last night, on Day 55 of this ground-breaking expedition, they did just that.
On June 3, 2014, Dixie Dansercoer and Eric McNair-Landry completed the premiere circumnavigation of the Greenland Icecap.
On June 4, 2014, in the wee hours of the morning, they arrived at their final destination of the expedition, Greenspeed Ridge, where the wait for their helicopter pickup will now begin.
We congratulate Dixie and Eric on their amazing accomplishment!
