Hello, this is Annie calling from the Vatnajokull Expedition, calling on behalf of Rob and Eric and Eric Lillstrom and John Gluckman. We're having a good time up on the glacier. We are 17 kilometers onto the glacier. We had a long day today. Got up very early to try to take advantage of the cooler temperatures for a river crossing and it worked and but it took us the first 5 hours of the day just to get to the edge of the glacier, and then we were able to put in about 17 kilometers on to the glacier. It started off with some light mist and sometimes heavy mist, almost rain and some stronger winds, but now, and for the last few hours, it has been calm and sunny. Every so often a few clouds roll and then sunny again, so we're really blessed by this good weather. We had a big wind storm last night and our tents were fluttering around and so it makes us appreciate this nice calm weather even more. We're all doing good. We hope you're enjoying following along, and we will report back in tomorrow. Thanks! Bye-bye.
