    Please accept my hearty congratulations to all the crew and support team for this historic achievement!

    Your little ship has earned a place of honor the history books – hopefully in a museum also.

    First of ALL, your achivement is of such a massive scale, we, all around feel humble, and in great awe for what you’ve been through, just “sacrificing” a nice summer like that :-). On the other hand, you and your blog became a kind of obsession for quite a few of us stranded at home, worlwide, but how many nice people I’ve learned to know, thanks to you. Jean, Olav, Neven, Lord Soth, Rikki, Wollert, Artful Dodger, just to mention a few, and MANY of us is as concerned as you about the further developement in the Arctic!
    I will for sure go to “Dronningen”, Bygdøy, will be awfully fun to meet you live, after all you’ve almost been as important as the wife, for some exciting weeks, I hope she’ll forgive me some day!!!
