Arrived at Nome, Alaska

Hi folks, we finally arrived at Nome after a 24-hour flight from Zurich, Switzerland. We have really strong winds here and storm clouds, it’s also quite cold: 2-5 degree Celsius. Yesterday we went for a test ride with the kites in extreme conditions and had to wait for the 6 meter high waves to calm down a bit so the boats could go out too. That is why we’re still here in Nome – hopefully we can make the three-hour boat trip to Teller tomorrow. On Friday, we plan to do the first try for the crossing. Spirits are good, we’re all pretty excited! I keep you posted – and you guys keep your fingers crossed!
