I have 5 weeks to get all the kit, work on a treatment, find a translator and get all my tax papers in for the last year. A weeks hard work normally! An almost impossible schedule as you understand. On top of this, it is Christmas and the Yemen Doc! So what I have done these last two days is getting all paers needed for the visa ready, applied for a Flag at The explorers Club and done my traditional Expedition Book. (see below) I am also taking to one clothes sponsor and I talked to Yegor Makarov yesterday, via a translator about all things in Yakutia and it seems the reindeer herders want a lot of money. However, Jegor has picked up all fur gear needed. So the question is, do I than need any modern polar gear?
Question, will the visa come through and will we get everything on board in time? I just don´t wanna do a sloppy job!
