North Pole Travel and Global Warming, What it Means to You

I'm not sure why we did it this way but we flew the Skiers to the Sredney Island in the An-12 then followed them in the An-26.  When we got to Sredney, we had to take all of our equipment off of our airplane and load the skiers equipment into the airplane so they can go to the North Pole first.  The whole point was if our part of the expedition would have gone to the Sredney in the An-12, which is too big to land on the pole, and the skiers would have taken the An-26,  we wouldn't have to had to do all of this loading and unloading.    The picture above shows us loading the equipment from the truck to the cabin on Sredney.  We left most of our equipment outside but the food stuff that was in cans had to be kept out of the cold to prevent freezing and cracking of the cans.

After everyone was in the cabin, I walked outside and noticed that the islands dogs were marking their spot on my bag.  Later, I noticed another dog marking his spot on the bags.  It figures, here we are in Russian territory and they marked the American bags.
