Manager 7 Summits Club Anastasiya Kuznetsova is currently in the city of Longyear, on Spitsbergen. In the next month she will perform the duties of the coordinator of the work of the ice camp Barneo, preparation for the construction of which is in full swing.

 

Preparation for landing on an ice for the construction of a camp Barneo

 

 

Now, what is clear from the window

 

 

Polar evenings

 

 

 

 

 

Official site of the project Barneo from the Russian Geographical Society
http://barneo.ru/

 

 

It is an airstrip of about 1200 by 60 meters size, which is built at the end of March on the drifting floe in the area around 89 degrees North. This is a fully functional runway, capable of landing the Antonov An-74 cargo-passenger aircraft.

Ice Camp

Ice Camp is the main infrastructure component of dominantly tourist expeditions to the North Pole, a unique complex for hosting visitors and base personnel. An Ice Camp consists of specially designed tents with rigid frames. All the tents are heated, and the temperature inside is kept between 15 and 18 °С.

The largest ones are mess tents: one for staff and one for visitors. These tents are connected by a kitchen block. Mess tent for visitors is the main place for meetings and briefings, here travelers meet and get to know each other. Breakfasts, lunches and dinners are served here at specified times, and snacks, tea or coffee are available 24 hours a day. Living tents for visitors accommodate up to 12 persons. Camp staff lives in separate modules. An important part of the Camp is bio-toilets. There are also technical modules for storing and maintenance of equipment.

If necessary, the Camp doctor can provide medical first aid.

The Scientific Camp and the camp of helicopter crews are satellites of the main Camp.

Since it is impossible to keep the runway on drifting ice floe for more than one season, the Camp has to be constructed from scratch every year. This is the main difference between this project and that of the similar projects in the Antarctic. At the end of every season all the equipment is removed from the ice.

Hello! Today we begin our first expedition on Kilimanjaro organizing by our new Tanzanian office. This will be a record by number of participants expedition. 36 young climbers (Spartans) from different cities of Russia ! They arrived today from different parts of Tanzania and even Kenya. Clear, that the day before they arrived in Africa from Russia.

A few hours later we were at the gates of the National Park at Machame Gate. Our young Spartans went to the assault of the "roof of Africa" on the beautiful Machame route. By the way, many of them decided to go in sporty style - with heavy backpacks, without using " slave labor ", as they said.

Wait for messages from the mountain on the further adventures of the Spartans from the guide of 7 Summits Club Sasha Sac!
