“A hive of activity here. The first fuel scoots have been pulled out of their drifts and are now rigged up ready to move.

As I write we are getting ready to try and take the first two loads of scoots north. The sun is shining but drifting snow is reducing visibility. We will have someone on foot ahead of the Cats to give them direction. With the conditions less than ideal we aren’t sure how we will get on but it’s worth a try.”

Heading out
