Monday, 15. may, first day in camp

Flade Isblink camp is established now and the irridium telephone is open and placed in the kitchen tent. All in camp are in a good mood.

The day has been used to establish camp. The weatherport, the sleeping tents and a "shitter"-tent is up. The generator is running and electrical cables have been pulled to the kitchen tent and the site for the drill/science dome. In the act of preparing the shitter a 1.5 m deep hole has been dug. No melt layers were found. Is the accumulation very high - or has there been no melt last summer?
Tomorrow the drill/science tent will be established.

It's has been -14 - -10 deg C with wind 8-10 m/s. Ice fog all day.
