Friday 12. May, the project has started!

After breakfast at 9.00 am we continued finding and sorting cargo. The temporary freezer for ice core storage was erected outside one of St. Nord's garages. It was built within 3 hours, but then the weather was getting marginal, and by the time the Twin Otter arrived from Alert christmas snow was falling. The temperature was -3C and there was almost no wind. We have talkedt to Jonas and StrĂ¥le and Rene Forsberg have taken the geodetic equipment out of the plane. Sverrir repaired Naja Mikkelsens skidoo, and the skidoo she borrowed from St. Nord, so she and Yngve are ready to leave.
Svend, the head of St. Nord, checked all our papers and reported to the Greenland Command that project Flade Isblink has started. Lars and JP checked the pack-list. If weather permits we will try to get to Flade Isblink tomorrow. Jonas thinks that we can do it in one day.
