I'm disappointed. When I saw the thread title I thought it was you Barbara who was snowshoeing solo across GSL.

Curious time to do such a trek, especially with his statement: "From what I understand, there's still some open water out there," ....That's probably the biggest potential issue for me." :o

Its the shortest daylight of the year, with thinner ice still forming. There will be pressure cracks with thinner ice for crossings. There is potential for deep cold.

I was wondering why he would not make the trip in April when there is glorious long daylight, maybe warm temps, and very thick ice? I wish him all the best.
