Adrian Flanagan flew back into London Heath Row late on Thursday night for a reunion with his sons and Expedition Manager Louise.
A party is being given for Adrian and then he will get down to the task of completing his book “Over The Top”. He already has a diary of speaking engagements and interviews, but key tasks will centre around the planning for his return to Nome, Alaska in June 2007 to prepare to complete his vertical circumnavigation.
Already the work is underway to assess the 2006 ice maps and to monitor the the ice patterns for next summer.
Adrian currently plans to return to Nome in June to see Barrabas back in the water. He will then restore and test his boat which may include some working up cruises along the Alaskan coast while he waits for an ice window to open.
