Final Day of Prep


Today is the last day of preparation before Mike and Clare begin their expedition to cross the Greenland Icecap.  They have spent the last few days in the small village of Kangerlussauq in Western Greenland.  There they have had time to meet the rest of the team and do final equipment checks etc.   Also on the list was food shopping – lots and lots of food shopping as you can see from the photos!  Tomorrow the team will begin their climb up onto the icecap – this is a gruelling part of the journey with all the kit having to be carried up onto the icecap.  You can track the team daily on the map here and keep tuned to updates on Twitter and Facebook .
