Moving equipment from the Surface Program tents to the area accessible with skidoo.
With all main activities stopped drillers, core processers and surface program team were all documenting and packing. It was a wonder to see how fast boxes were documented and organized and boxes started to pop up on the surface for return to Kangerlussaq. As a special treat we were served a Chinese dinner by Nan, Li with many helpers. THANKS for the very special extra ‘Saturday Night Dinner’.
