    Barren Lands – April 15 – Day 27

    "I'm used to the solitude here. In fact, I don't even think about it. I'm just traveling one day after another. It's a beautiful rhythm that I'm into, and the beautiful country." - Will Steger, April 15, 2018. Vera Lake, NWT.

    Barren Lands – April 14 – Day 26

    "Two things could happen here. The high pressure could come back - the cold. Or you get a low pressure, which with a southeast wind, would bring in moisture, which would be a major problem for me." - Will Steger, April 14, 2018.

    Barren Lands – April 13 – Day 25

    "I took the day off today. It's really a luxury to be able to just lay around. In real life, you don't get that opportunity... The real adventure starts tomorrow with these portages... Things get exciting now. There's no security here." - Will Steger April 13, 2018

    Barren Lands – April 09 – Day 21

    "Caribou is the only food I've ever eaten I can maintain my strength on. I eat it pretty much rare - extremely rare - with lots of lard so it's real fatty. I'm not really much of a meat eater back in the real world, but I prefer caribou here." - Will Steger, April 09, 2018

    Barren Lands – April 08 – Day 20

    "There's been a wolf that's been following me, and I've been following it... Wolves will generally follow the old portage trails, so when I saw this faint, very slight depression (of wolf tracks) in the snow, I followed it, and sure enough, they led to a trail." - Will Steger, April 08, 2018.

    "I made a mistake and went up one of the wrong bays. It cost me about 3 hours of hard time. But that's just part of the way it goes sometimes." - Will Steger, April 07, 2018.

    Barren Lands – April 06 – Day 18

    "These last 17-18 days almost seem like a blur to me - really tough days, not making a lot of time, and not really getting into that expedition rhythm... But now I feel like the expedition is really starting for me. I'm getting into that rhythm again." - Will Steger, April 06, 2018.
