The exploration season in the Arctic regions has really gotten underway both on Svalbard and throughout the Arctic. It almost seems like there will be so many people skiing or sailing around us that we will have to keep a good lookout during whiteouts to avoid colliding with them ;)
One expedition in particular, the Czech Arctos III team, may actually meet us at some point during our traverse. One of our common aims is the ascent of Newtontoppen, Svalbard's highest peak. In true Czech fashion, we decided to make a bet with them. Whoever comes to the top last will have to sponsor a round of beer for all involved! Read more here.
On a more serious note, the Frozen Five team wishes all the best to all the Arctic expeditions that are currently ongoing! For a comprehensive list, check out ThePoles.com.
