Expedition Day 18 – Aborted attempt #2 / camp visitors

Another fine morning in our Arctic paradise… High winds, more rain and low clouds – we were ready to go but increasingly poor weather has kept us grounded.

Rescheduled for tomorrow morning at 0900. Weather is “supposed” to improve then.

Have coordinated everything with Lasse via satellite phone. They likewise have rain and fog at Kap Stosch. He also said that they had a couple of polar bears come through the camp last night – only 300 m away!

All OK though – the bears moved on. Seems like they were just curious.

The team is obviously very keen to get out now. Everything is ready so we just need a break in the @*!?§#% weather!
