Ice Return Forces an Interlude for Alpha Global Expedition


Time finally ran out for Alpha Global Expedition. The Arctic ice retreated early this year and has now returned early. This means that Barrabas will be stored safely ashore in Nome Alaska until next summer when Adrian will return and attempt to complete his vertical circumnavigation. Paperwork delays have proved to be a blessing in disguise because had Adrian left Nome on schedule after completing repairs he could have been trapped in the ice.
