We got some coordinates from the Nanoq Team – and its always good to get their position on the map.

The Nanoq goal says: “We will help to create a continuous connections, platform and model for future gatherings with the aim of transferring cultural heritage”
We have one, -and only one way to do that. We need to create communication.
What is “create communication?
That is you who read this now. That is you who want to spread it on your channels and your lines. That is the use of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube.
There is one small team on the ice in Greenland today. They get the facts and photos. We are today 184 persons who likes the Facebook page. We get it too. There was 15 “likes” when we started our Instagram profile for 1 hour ago.
We need it to be global. We need attention: likes, shares, re-twittering, with you and your friends shouting it out.
We need help to spread the photos, the text, and the voices from the artic ice. That is the artic ice that can melt and hit your doorstep. That is the culture and history we want to help.
Have a super weekend with a like and a share.

(Norwegian). 1000 meter altitude. Windy. 21 minus. Going downwards from the top after this.
The first tests and video files have found it’s way to the site…. (Norwegian, about fishing and the warming cabin)

We need help to spread the word, get followers, and communicate the Nanoq Expedition.
Torgeir & Team,
Her you can hear (!!) a post. I have sent you a telephone number and a secret code.
1. Call this number 2. press the secret code 3. speak inn your message 4. press the Hash sign (#)
The voice message will appear on this site after some minutes.
Pretty cool for your kids, and also a nice little web thing to share latest news in a fast way (the few times – when you have mobile network …)
We, here in Norway can make the headline, – like “internal” or “standing next to a poolar beer and have to run” and ad photos.
The first photos and text are flying over via some satellites from Greenland.
Want to know more about the best hunter in the team?, the grandchild of the American polar scientist
Robert Peary?, and the one who built the new Kon Tiki?
Go here for the team. (more photos will come…)

NANOQ is a dogsled expedition from the northernmost county, Avanersuaq in
Greenland, to Norway, via all settlements along the Arctic coast of
Canada, USA and Russia. The journey will span seven years, within the
frame from mid March to May each year. The goal is to create a continuous
connections, platform and model for future gatherings with the aim of
transferring cultural heritage.
NANOQ is important because it consists of perhaps the last female and male
carriers of traditions in the Arctic, and because of the collaboration
between them. By tying together populations and their tradition the
expedition and meetings will
1) create a platform for continued gatherings and workshops
2) preserve traditional heritage such as knowledge and crafts
NANOQ er en hundeslede-ekspedisjon som starter i Qaannaaq, Grønland – og
går via Canada, Alaska og Russland til Norge. Sledeturen foregår i mars og
april måned hvert år i 7 år. Målet med å reise langs hele den artiske kyst
er å styrke kontakten mellom folk i Arktis.
Deltakerne består av kvinner og menn med kunnskap om urfolks tradisjoner i
Arktis. Reisen skal foregå med tradisjolent utstyr og på tradisjonelle
måter. Slik oppnår vi
1) å styrke kontakten mellom den arktiske befolkning
2) å formidle, bevare og utvikle tradisjonell kultur i Arktis

To go to Qaanaaq you have to use Greenlandair…
First, we took this plane. Copenhagen-Kangerlussuaq, a 4,5 hours flight, – then you must wait four hours for a plane from
Kangerlussuaq-Ilulissat with only one stop.
In Ilulissat you have to wait 24 hours to do the journey North, Ilulissat-Qaanaaq, with two stops in small villages.
Have a happy easter!
