The team's progress has been slower than hoped - Snowbird 6 has been having big problems clearing American customs into Canada and has now been delayed a week as it has some mud steamed off its tracks!

It is all confirmed to be moving again on Tuesday - the helicopter team have been having an interesting adventure - the first day they made it to Victoria, Canada, which was a great city but they have since been making pretty slow progress up the West Coast of Vancouver Island due to 50 kt winds gusting to 60 kts with pretty poor visibility as well.

That said, they've been having some amazing experiences - fantastic local people, phenomenal seafood, vast open uninhabited lands, hot springs and basking seals.
