Monday, 26th June: We are packing down.

We wake up to a warm sunny day and everybody starts packing equipment into boxes. Sigfus measures temperatures in the bore hole. At the bottom it is -12 C. During the day we pack all drilling and scientific equipment. The remaining food is sorted out. Dry food will be transported to Station Nord. The frozen food has been stored at
marginal temperatures for a while so we decide not to bring that out.
Plastic and cardboard is removed from the frozen food we plan to leave on site. Sverrir and Thorsteinn drive down to Station Nord on snow mobiles to check if it still is possible to to go all the way. They return after supper and report that the track is still good, but the snow is wet and heavy so the snow mobiles may not pull a heavy load.

Weather: Sunny, wind 2 m/s from NW, temperatures 0 to +3 C.
