2010 Liverpool Land expedition (leader: Phil Poole)

Saturday 3rd April

Arrived in Reykjavik yesterday, but due to bad weather we have been unable to fly to Constable Point today. Going to have it to wait it out.

Tuesday 6th April

Still in Reykjavik! Weather is still too poor to fly but the forecast looks like we might be to go tomorrow. :-)

Thursday 8th April

Scheduled flight yesterday was cancelled yet again, but we've finally managed to get to Constable Point today. We will spend the night here and hopefully travel by snowmobile to Milne Land tomorrow.

Friday 9th April

More bad news unfortunately. Due to rather warm temperatures for the time of year the snowmobiles are struggling in the wet snow and we have been unable to to reach Milne Land. We are now back at Constable Point reviewing our options.

Monday 12th April

After much deliberation over the possibility of helicopter transfer to Milne Land or to use the snowmobiles to get to Liverpool Land, we arrived in Liverpool Land on Saturday. Weather is beautiful now with blue skies and temperatures are dropping again so snow is firming up again. Life is good!

Friday 16th April

After our initial bad start we have had blue skies everyday since being in Liverpool Land and have managed to get out everyday since being here so far!

Wednesday 21st April

Returning to Iceland today. We have had blue skies the whole time in Liverpool Land and being out in the mountains every single day. We are scheduled to return to Britain tomorrow and flights have been flying out of Keflavik as normal, apart from to the UK. So we shall have to see what tomorrow brings!
