While waiting for our delayed departure…

Published 04.04 in category North Pole 2006

Bad weather prevented the aeroplane from coming to Ice Station Borne, N89?33’. That’s bad news for us – we were really looking forward to going home. Right now it’s snowing and there is an 8-metre per second westerly wind. The aeroplane has no chance of landing on the ice under such weather conditions. But our Swiss meteorologist tells us there should be an opportunity tomorrow.

It feels like we’ve been waiting here a long time. Very boring, of course, but it shows once again that nature runs this show. We just have to be patient; that’s a key requirement for expedition life.
