Elektricity on the island is available for approx. 8 hours daily, not for the whole day. So, expediton activity also depends on other sources of electricity, we expect 16-18 hours of operation daily.

Probability of internet connection on the island still exist, but is low, so online-log and some photo will be published when the ops arrive home.
