There is only space for one when Svante packs the pulk. Nils Thomas tests a gas burner. The place to enjoy a good pint: Shackleton’s Bar. Helen dances with joy – the packing is almost done! …while Helen celebrates with a glass of “matte”.

Otto and Britt inspect all provisions before backing them. Part of the team is gathered (from left: Børge, Otto, Britt, Nils Thomas and Svante). All packed, but it won’t fit in the taxi. Hey, these two want to join us! Please?
