All systems are go. I arrived in Auckland on Friday and it has been non stop ever since! But not in a bad way as thanks to a team of volunteers helping me through step by step. I feel quite charmed with this project with the numbers of people that have donated time and sometimes even money to make the crazy idea in my head become a reality. Many hands make light work but also there is warmth and interesting conversation and a team of people who are all now invested in this project being a success. Today is my first day solo- this is necessary to resolve some niggly bits and to pull all of the separate parts together into a cohesive whole. I have almost 3 days to do this and it feels quite achievable.
So… Here are some images thus far-from suitcase to ice sheet and then ice shelf!
