Day 16: Tuesday 18 July 2017
Good nights sleep.
Weather was fine overnight (for once), but rain started early morning, with high winds, which continued throughout the rest of the day…….
They were good enough to take in Exploration Vehicle 1 immediately into their workshop, and to start working on the Drive Shaft Universal Joint fix, which we didn’t manage to fix ourselves yesterday.
We were privileged to receive a “behind the scenes” tour of the workshop, where we saw a number of vehicles in the process of rebuild and modification.
Very interesting experience.
We then took a tour around their shop, and bought a number of Arctic Trucks merchandize items – couldn’t resist !!!

Day 18: Hafnarfjörður – Fluðir
Tuva eat a “healthy lunch” !!!
Weather conditions were terrible, with high winds and torrential rain.
The flight was delayed ca.40 minutes.
Anja had a good flight, and flying conditions were good all the way – no issues
Baggage Reclaim and Customs was fast and efficient.
Anja brought a dog over with her, as a good will gesture to a friend – which was taken into quarantine upon arrival.
Once we had Anja on-board, we drove back to Hafnarfjörður Campsite to establish ourselves.
We would like to once again thank Arctic Trucks for all their positive help and support in our time of need – really highly appreciated.
We then drove into Reykjavík, to meet with Neil’s extended Icelandic family, and take dinner together.
It was really great to meet up with David, Matthildur, Matti & Berglind again – too long since last time…
Matti (Hemstock) kindly gave Neil a copy of his latest music CD, which we are looking forward to playing as we drive around Iceland.
As like all good evening gatherings, it all ended far too early…..
Continued to camp at Hafnarfjörður Campsite
