    One part that really would bother me if it is true:

    I don't like the idea that one group would ask the other to cancel, I don't think it would hurt to have both expeditions if both had been possible, plenty of folks to work!

    It's not just about having plenty of people to work. It is about sponsors and financial support. Both DX peditions would likely be asking for financial support and equipment loans from the same rather small group of sources.Hitting the same folks up for $$ for two Dxpeditions at the same time would likely reduce the amount each group would get. These DXpeditions are extremely expensive and while the operators pay a huge amount themselves they cannot self finance the entire thing.

    Actually they say they are 100% self funded! Did you see the size of the boat they will be taking?

    Seems like some merging of the efforts might be worthwhile but...maybe not logistically.

    Does it have a helicopter for landing or do they have to use a rubber dinghy?

    I'm not sure, I think we will get up to speed once Bernie W3UR is off vacation.
    Unless the whole thing is an early April Fools Joke.
