After a four hour delay, the team's flight left Longyearbeyn and has landed at the Barneo Ice Camp. Despite the delay, everyone is in good spirits. During the flight they were treated to a sighting of 4 polar bears. What a special way to begin an expedition!
The air feels warm, it is a bit overcast, and there is some wind out of the southeast. The team is gathering for dinner and is very excited to begin heading north tomorrow.
