Expedition count down

With just one day to go, the excitement of heading North is palpable, not only for expedition members, but also Group Leader, families and friends.

With a few loose ends still to tie up, bags and barrels are distributed and the scientific projects ahead have been finalised. Plans set, travel and communications arrangements are made and those last days where the adrenalin takes over has arrived.

We cannot stress too highly how incredibly grateful we are to all of the many supporters of ARG whether through cash donations, discounts, donated or loaned equipment, or help in any other way. Without you, our supporters, we would not be going and the science we are about to undertake would not be possible. Thank you.

80 Degrees North means the field team will be completely out of normal communication so just a single daily text by satellite phone back to our home agent and a few planned media broadcasts on BBC Radio will be all there is to keep everyone informed on how the expedition is progressing.

Reports on our work, findings and experiences will commence as soon as we return so look out for some exciting news.
