Tired, distressed and hungry, Mike Horn and Børge Ousland “dream of food”. The presenter of The Island has even posted a picture of chocolate Norwegian that they have in their possession. His biggest wish ? Can gorging on chocolate without restriction ! It has even launched an appeal on the social network to ask his subscribers to send him the chocolate that he could enjoy at his return. The adventurer wants to receive “the best” they know “and don’t forget to tell me why this chocolate is so special through a post or a story about your page Instagram. I look forward to hearing your stories and taste your chocolates to my back”.
His daughter and Hugo Clément left to save
In spite of the recent disturbing photo of Mike Horn to the Arctic, his daughters felt relieved. One of them, Jessica, has, however, decided to help his father. With the journalist Hugo Clement and the team of Mike Horn, it is a party on board the boat, the Pangaea (which belongs to his dad) in Svalbard, Norway. Together, they will attempt to save the one who has been a lieutenant in the south-african special forces.
On Instagram, Hugo Clement explained that Mike Horn and Børge Ousland are “in difficulty on the sea ice near the north Pole. Their expedition should already be completed, but climate change is threatening the ice and slows down their progress. They are weak, victims of frostbite, and it remains that 4 days worth of food”. Suddenly, “a ship breaking the ice tent in that moment to join them, but the task is complicated. The temperatures go down to -40 and the polar night makes the navigation perilous”.
During this time, the former columnist of Daily on TMC and the daughter of Mike Horn will “accompany the team of Mike, who is going to try to go on the road to the north to recover with Børge, when they will be sufficiently down to open waters. Last option if the ship can not reach : two other explorers to ski to be laid on the ice to go to refuel”.
Hugo Clement said he was confident for the moment, because the two explorers “have advanced to the south over the last 24 hours, and the Spear (breaking the ice) is continuing its journey towards the north. Still a hundred of kilometers between them”.
