Last day in camp – perhaps?

More packing in very grey weather.

Today all science equipment is palletized in preparation of the skier mission tomorrow.

The weather forecast for Wednesday looks bad so the weather is followed eagerly: what is the wind and the temperatures.

During the whole day winds were high and we had significant snowfall. Not good odds for tomorrows mission.

What we have done today:
1. Packing the Japanese aerosol station
2. Sealing the Dome
3. GPS measurements near camp
4. Packing science and drill equipment
5. Preparing the science trench for overwinter
6. Building Science Pallet

Ad 5
All boxes have been documented and snow removed behind the tables.
The ice core box storage room has been emptied.

Weather: Overcast, temp. -6°C to -3°C, wind 8 to 18 knots from SW.
