3-5-09 Ammasialiq Greenland
The day began with more sorting of equipment. Tents were fettled, flasks insulated and food counted 50 bags of 5000 calories. Dehydrated meals, chocolate and haribo. After lunch we took our skis down to the frozen sea for a quick blast in this stunning place. We headed towards a group of locals fishing through the ice. One of the group was a local policeman who told us that the sea was 200m deep in this sport, he also wish used well for the challenging journey. He pointed us towards some polar bear tracks, apparently a bear had been through this area and chased a local getting within 6 m of him! This explains the screaming and shouting that Carolyn had heard. Tuesday up to the ice cap and the journey truly begins.
4-5-09 Carl left for the icecap today to get the dog teams sorted, the rest of us went to the local school to meet some year 8 and 9 pupils. The kids were great and it provided an interesting insight into the local community. Later we will pack are final bits and take the helicopter to meet Carl and dogs up on the icecap. Happy birthday Mum.
