A problem of management of my sled dog camp in Finnish Lapland force me to postpone the start of the Transarctic expedition to July 2016.
This report raises many problems, but I prefer to see this situation in the most positive way. In any case it does not affect our motivation. On the contrary, it will allow us to be even more pointed on the technical preparation, develop communication and scientific protocols … So I want to see this report as an asset for the project will be better crafted and its chances of success will be all the greater.

The coming winter will see us training the dogs and testing all the equipment.
Long live the Adventure!
