Ahead of Sichling, Himachal Pradesh, India, 29 January 2017, 0955 hours:
We have hit our first roadblock. The PWD bulldozer is ahead and will go into Mane village to clear there. The climb to Mane Dhank will be cleared by BRO machines but it isn’t clear if they will come on a Sunday. We will wait for the PWD machine to go into the village and then take our chances ahead.
