A Look Back: Dark Snow 2013

September 25, 2014

Last year after returning from the first Dark Snow mission,  I put together 2 “Dark Snow Log” videos.

I wanted to review them in light of what’s happened in the last year. Occurred to me that somebody else might, as well.
I think they’re kinda good, in a low key way.
I got so caught up in  other paying projects that I did not complete anymore, but they make an interesting prelude to recent events.

The videos outline our last dash up the coast of Greenland in the hope of retrieving the samples we wanted. After being frustrated with our flight provider for a week, we finally elected to go with an Air Greenland Chopper. After an initial miscalculation that took us to Nuuk, the capital – Jason Box orchestrated a pirouette – we jumped into a small cab bulging with drills and cameras and met a chopper at the overcast airport.
What followed was about the God damnedest Helo ride imaginable, through utterly bleak and beautiful coastal mountains.
We stopped to refuel in Kangerlussuaq, and ponder the next steps.
