this confuses me. is he holding the actual camera or is there a drone that follows the thing he's holding?

The camera deletes itself from the video. check out the last second where he presses the button on the camera but you dont see the camera

That is because it can't take a picture of itself.. It gets everything around it.

I think they leave tonight, so it would have had to be Sunday night, which since we haven't seen any pics of it, sounds like it didn't happen.

Didnt things get thrown off with the fuel shortage or something? They had to stop in the Falkian Islands...

They have an extra long grueling fast starting very soon.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
