We were only planning on being in Upernavik for 24 hours but things don’t always go as planned. During an expedition of this nature problems are going to occur. It could be anything from something on the boat breaking unexpectedly, scientific equipment malfunctioning, sickness or injury, etc. You prepare for an expedition the best you can and you play it safe as often as possible but unexpected things occur. Then again, it wouldn’t be an adventure if you knew how it was going to end.
