Final preparations in Longyearbyen
It was a long day full of a myriad of details for our team in Longyearbyen.
The bulk of their preparatory work this morning took place indoors regarding food packaging and distribution. They later moved to a nearby equipment hangar to practice one final time with basic gear before packing their sleds for tomorrow's departure.
Everyone was in excellent spirits and the excitement was palpable during tonight's dinner at KROA in Longyearbyen.
It was an early return to their guesthouse for a final hot shower and a last deep sleep in a fluffy bed before the start of their expedition tomorrow. Dixie phoned just an hour ago with profound satisfaction in his voice. This group is ready to go!
