Thursday, 8. June. Back to the camp

The Grønlandsfly Twin Otter with Flemming and Ståle as pilots fueled right after breakfast and the departing team took off at 9 am. Many hugs and kisses were exchanged before Jørgen Peder, Simon, Andreas, Bruce, Claus and Dennis started the impressive flight down the east coast. On this trip a stop-over was made at Danneborg with a delivery to the Danish sledge patrol in Northern Greenland, the Sirus Patruljen. A low camp overfly gave some nice photo opportunities. Thank you to Flemming and Ståle for providing such nice weather!

The ten who will stay in camp to the end are: Dorthe, Sigfus, Steff, Sverrir, Lars, Nancy, Trevor, Bo, Peter, and Thorstein.

We spent some time at Nord to try to repair one of our skidoos that was broken, but it didn't work out. Instead it was possible to borrow one skidoo from Nord and we started the trip up to Flade Isblink. After two trips everybody were up in camp at 20 pm. The menu that evening consisted in fresh strawberries, Danishnish potatoes, asparagus, and roast beef. Mum.

We made a big decision to turn up side down day and night in order to sleep during the (too) warm hours in day time and work at night. From 10 pm to 1 am we drilled three cores that were logged measured and packed so that everybody could see how it is done. The cores look very nice and it is difficult to see that we are actually at 130 m depth. We guess that the melt layers and the warm temperatures together with a well-tuned drill that provide the beautiful cores with no breaks.

The plan now is to sleep as much as possible during Friday, have breakfast at 5 pm, and start drilling and processing at 6 pm in two shifts until 10 am Saturday morning.
