Co-Leader Ken, LA7GIA, posted the following update on the 3Y0J Bouvet Island FaceBook page
(https://www.facebook.com/groups/3093983840726129), September 9th [edited]:

“The 20ft 3Y0J container has arrived at Oslo airport!! Team is busy packing container as it is scheduled to leave Oslo early next week and arrive in VP8 early November. We’re going through our check lists, all equipment is being weighted and measured. All content is being logged. This is an extremely time consuming activity, but we will all be rewarded when we go onshore Bouvet in 4 month’s time.

Next up is container shipment and then 3rd vessel deposit – please consider to donate to help us reach Bouvet. During the last two weeks we have received another 20,000 USDs in donations which we’re extremely grateful for… Thanks to everyone for supporting us!”
