Out expedition begins tomorrow. We'll head out with my friend and fellow polar guide Audun Tholfsen by snowmobile to the east coast to see if we can spot some polar bear. We then go to Svea coal mining town to pick up a researcher then head back towards town.

Mardi and I will be dropped off at the southern end of Sabine land where we'll camp the night then begin the next morning.

Pic of mountains over Longyearbyen. Hoping to see the northern lights while here, conditions are good for it.
