Prepared for bad weather, high winds and snow drift. So build a snow wall around the tent and setup the bear fence protection.
In April and May  2017 I  trained in the glaciated Liverpool Land mountains in the Arctic circle, Greenland (shown by red pin). Polar training  involve time on the ice, glacier work, crossing fiords and traverse sea ice. In Iceland, I tested an immersion suit which is essential for crossing leads (swimming across water between ice floats).

Live tracking of the Uberman course.
Uberman is the world's most challenging Ultra Triathlon.  The 556 mile course goes from the Mists of Avalon to the Snows of Mount Whitney. Starting on Catalina Island, participants swim 21 miles in the open Pacific Ocean to the shores of Palos Verdes. The 400 mile bike route leaves the city of Angels and climbs 20,000 vertical feet before descending to Badwater basin, at 200 feet below sea level, the lowest point in North America. From Badwater, athletes run 135 miles  through Death Valley before ascending 13,000 feet to the trailhead @ Mt Whitney, the highest peak in the Continental United States. http://www.uberman1.com/#our-story-1

To see article published in Outside Magazine about the race,


 

Three Radio interviews with ABC Sydney Radio. Here is the last one. My voice was affected by a combination of the dry arid conditions in the desert and the throat infection I had due to the 21 mile swim. During the swim some whales came up and left a mess in my swim. A combination of swimming through whale poo and being sick most likely caused the throat infection.
