The Italian Michele Portrandolfo was finally recovered without any problem on 23 April by the Kenn Borek logistics, from Resolute Bay.
He will have taken time to realise that he would never get there, but, as we saw in the previous message, on 13 April, Michele Portrandolfo finally decided to give up his adventure. But he was going to have to wait for ten days in his tent to be smoothly recovered by the Kenn Borek firm's Canadian logistics.Â Because, although he had found an ideal landing strip, the weather conditions during all that time prevented the Twin Otters from carrying out such an operation.
His last communicated position was that of 21 April and, at that time, he had finally crossed Degree 85: 85° 31.248 N / 68° 22.3616 W. For the time being, Portrandolfo has had nothing to say about a possible new attempt next year.
