"Our strong team of five polar dogs took us easily five kilometres NE from Vagabond for the ice thickness measurements. The ice towards Agardhbukta turned out to be all hummocked, which made the sledging interesting as well as the fresh bear tracks all around in the surroundings with not so great visibility. But what we would not do for science :D! 50 cm wide lead had opened last night in the middle of the ice profile 2 km from the boat. All I hope is that the ice stays in the bay and the food Eike is now cooking will be good even if the potatoes had frozen. Sanja"
