Well, this season the blog is going to be a little different. We are changing perspective: Last season we reported directly from the ice, this season we will report from back home and from what we hear from down there. Interestingly, it is not a lot so far -- but we are hoping that it will get better.

Yes, we will be going down again this year. And yes, there will be new photos and new stories about spending nights on the ice-shelf.
What do we have in store for you this year? Not absolutely sure yet, but fairly certain it will involve drilling/melting holes, installing a wind-generator, and ... who would have thought ... digging. Also this season, we will find everything buried by about an additional meter of snow.

No, we did not get lost!
