IPad not functional,
Today was a Rest Day, sort of. Washing, Drying, Ironing, gave me a break. While Dietmar concentrated on flight plans, I went out to buy our supply for Attu, 24h supply. Some Wine, crackers, Olives, sort of a moose biltong, one cup noodles. We will have a nice lunch, supper, breakfast and we will have some pad-kos to carry us into Russia.
We also send out an invite to the other crews:

Let's see who will turn up ;) we will be on the island between Saturday, 7th, lunch until Sunday, 8th after Sunrise. On that day we cross the Date Line and arrive in Russia on Monday, 9th, at Lunch after a 4 h flight. That is so strange.
Tomorrow we will go to Adak, often there is no electricity, never mind Internet facilities. As we have to save on power on all our devices, we will not be able to mail, sms or keep the blog up. As soon as we are able to communicate once more, and that will be from Japan in a few days, you will hear from us.
In the meantime you could always look at: www.pilotundflugzeug.de
Jan appears to have special facilities to keep the PuF Web Site updated, something we won't be able to do with our blog during times of no connection.
And we will be so happy if you would leave comments on our blog. Some people did already and we love to hear from you.
