We’ve packed our stuff into a combination of plastic and cardboard boxes which are taped up extremely well to withstand the long journey!

Hopefully it will all run like clockwork and we’ll be reunited with it when we step off the plane at Constable Point on the 6th April.

The remaining kit – mainly our clothes, skies and electronics will be coming with us on the plane in April. We’ve organised a training camp in Tromso, Norway towards the end of Feb to test run our gear, refresh our skills and to further develop our teamwork etc.

Our 60W solar panels work well in the January sun in the UK, but a better test will be in the northern Norwegian sun in Feb!
