I can hear the walls creak from the quick drop in temperature (-28C) outside. I roll over and it’s almost time to get up.

The plan is to rendezvous at a common area and carpool to save on parking costs. We are registered for the Polar Hero Race and have about a 2 hour drive before our heat at 1000 hrs.
