    Thanks for all the buyers! I can now afford a plane ticket to Iceland but I’d still need a transportation to the glacier and some food to keep me going. So please, be kind and buy the rest of the kit. I’m now leaving to Sarek National Park for a week of skiing and guiding so I won’t be reading my e-mails for a week.
