Myself (Byron), Craig Beaulieu and John Scarth(SBC) Have spent our first day in Iceland. The other 2 riders (Matt Belzile and Vera Janssen) for our trip missed their flight to a combination of border troubles and an accident on their way to Seatac Airport. They arrive Wednesday morning at 7am local time.
Tomorrow we are off in our 4x4 Nissan SUV/Jeep thingy 5hrs north to Akureyri. Apparently there is tons of snow there still! We are all Stoked to see the Country side. Judging by our 30min drive from the airport it feels like we are on the moon. Lots of lava rock scattered over the flat barren land.
There is a total of 4 hours of complete darkness during the day here. Currently it is 10PM and sun is long gone but the sky has a bit of light left in it.
Until we find Internet access, Have a good one, Craig, John, Byron, (Vera and Matt in Spirit)
