German visit

Published 29.05 in category Greenland Spring 2013

Another good day with 26 k done, and the start of a notably downhill slope towards the east coast.

Yesterday started with a bit rough conditions, sastrugi and headwind, but snow surface evened out later in the day and progress increased. Such is the conditions on Greenland, never the same, and always a surprise everyday.

Yesterday they met the German team, who perhaps will join us down the icefall. They have the same flight out, and Bengt estimate 6 days more, 4 days through the icefall and two days more out.

From here they will have a drop in altitude of 250 metres a day, which will help as well. You never know, but things look good so far and as before Bengt says they are having the time of their life.
