This afternoon the group departed Longyearbyen for the Barneo Ice Camp. Barneo is a Russian camp and runway that is set up on the Arctic ice for only 3 weeks of the year. The delay turned out to be worthwhile as they spotted four polar bears during their flight. This was an amazing way to begin their expedition!
Today the weather at Barneo is relatively warm. It is overcast with a wind out of the southeast. The team is getting ready for dinner and is very excited to start heading north tomorrow.
