All our food and most of our equipment is now on its way to Greenland – the journey has begun!
We’ve packed our stuff into a combination of plastic and cardboard boxes which are taped up extremely well to withstand the long journey!
We delivered it all to Immingham on the east coast and waved it on its way this afternoon…
Where will it go…?
- Sea Freight: Immingham, UK – Reykjavik cargo warehouse, Iceland
- Haulage: Reykjavik cargo warehouse, Iceland – Akureyri airport, Iceland
- Air Freight: Akureyri airport, Iceland – Constable Point, Greenland
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!
Less than 2 months to go…
