maps of this and that

Hi Washburns and everyone else. I'm service minded so here you are.
color chart:
red are the roads
green is the runway
blue are the dams
pink is where the river has cut through the roads or the dams
i hope the map is big enough for everyone to see...

today the weather was sunny and marvelous again, after a long time with rain and fog.

we spent part of the day on the road, close to Nyhavn trying to fill the broken road. we where using the bulldozer but there was no gravel only fine sand and black mud. the road now consists of a wet pile of this mess. but in a day or two it will dry out and we will be able to work it into a normal road...

the rest of the day was spent by paper work on the containers with goods that we are sending home with the supply ship and Hansi went on a sledge trip wit one of the guys from CASP (Cambridge Arctic Shelf Programme)

This is todays satelite picture over our area.
MVG in green is my station, it's on top of the V.
the fjord is 30 km wide.
the melting of the ice is very slow in our area, so it will be some weeks before we can sail anywhere...
o the top of the picture is DNB, Daneborg, the station is in the bottom of the B
this is a link to a newspaper in iceland. today an article about me and my life in sirius and mestersvig was published. it's on page 22, but it's in icelandic. but there are some nice pictures if you haven't learned the viking language

hej Bjarki, tak for the satphoto and kort, that was nice of you. You left out what's left of the road to Washburns, but we'll forgive you!! : ) (It was always very exciting the first day that the bulldozer could come from the mine to clear the upper part of the road...) And reading the newspaper will take me the rest of the year...but, much appreciated. (I have not been listening to Viking Songs about the names of bloody swords for nothing!!)

check out and look for UL-72 to see where Land is this week.
