The mission to EGRIP has been postponed to Friday – so we had an extra last day in camp. With the many hands in camp we took down two additional weatherport, winterized the surface over the trenches and also tons of other tasks. We took a group picture after dinner. The final pull out will be 22nd August.

  3. Levelling of camp with Pistenbully.
  4. Kitchen tent emptied and packed.
  5. Posts with electrical power for weatherports extended.
  6. Photo documentation of drill trench.
