We move on the other side of the island

Wednesday, March 17-Gamlemetten- calm weather.

John spent the night at Loran C (and so did the samples!) Pending the repair of the scooter he must bring it back to Gamlemetten so we can continue our work. Meanwhile, Johan, Anna and I pack again all our equipment and clean the house. We have decided to move to the small hut Ulla located on the east coast of the island at the foot of the glacier Sorbreen to which we want to focus our attention now if the weather remains favorable.

Our old home Gamlemetten + our gear.

We carry out the transfer during the afternoon. We even have time to leave the most of our equipment on the downstream portion of Sorbreen. To access the glacier from Ulla, we must drive over a steep moraine. At this point last year,  the lack of snow forced us to cross on foot pulling very heavy pulkka on the rock.

This year, if the snow depth was a problem on the Western side, it is an advantage here and we can get the scooter on beautiful drifts.
