Hello! In Longyear on Spitsbergen everything was okay. Every day, group after group fly to Barneo, we have two flights a day. This morning, a group of Russian scientists flew ice and evening flight was sent with a group of plane Artur Chilingarov. On Barneo they plan to hold a friendly football match between the local staff team and the team of Arthur Chilingarov.

Meanwhile ... our ski groups continue to move in the direction of the North Pole, along the programme Last degree (111 km ). Also, the group of Rick Schweitzer sled dog continues to move.

In the area of the camp Barneo was seen three polar bears. Borneo urgently requested to hand in these additional weapons, and that was done.

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 °.

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.
