New Fridge

Sverrir and Frederik enjoying the new fridge.

One of our ambitions was to install a second fridge in the kitchen. This would allow the cook to store more food in the kitchen and also arrange the second fridge as the place where all hungry outside the meal times could take some food. The new cooks fridge is a professional fridge with a foot pedal to open and it uses the same plates that go into the oven.
We hope all future cooks at EGRIP will enjoy it. Thanks to Sverrir for using Sunday morning to install it.

What we did today:

  1. Continued tests of Mills Cross Radar and 170-230 MHz Radar
  2. Established the overwinter cargo line
  3. Took down the flag line

  6. Organized food in freezer, freshie shack and kitchen
  7. Took down three weatherports
