Skier 22 today. Cargo for Kangerlussuaq is being loaded and camp staff is making ready for a fuel delivery.
With the flight today, we had a small crew exchange. We say hello to J.C., Aslak, Chloe, Thomas H. and Julien, and good-bye to Charlotte, Chiara and H.C. We are now 24 in camp. The flight operation went fine.
We received spareparts and three pallets of cargo. We also sent out two pallets of cargo. The weather is again fine and it is so much nicer and easy to work in sunshine. On the surface, we are almost ready to lift our last garage to a new berm. Our IT-guys (J.C. and Aslak) are beginning to reconfigure EGRIPs computer network and this will subsequently be hooked up to our 3 m satellite dish for continuous internet connection. By next week EGRIP should have web-cam, ceilometer for cloud measurements, and much nicer connection to the outside world.
The science groups are all making good progress.
What we did today:
Weather today: Fine all day. Temp. -20°C to -15°C. Wind: 10-15 kt from WSW. QNH 1013 hPa. Visibility: Unrestricted.
