AGW, I would really like to call in at Beechey Island but last resort pragmatism may also dictate some corner cutting when (if!) we get to Lancaster Sound. If we get there towards the end of August, Pascal and the NASA crew at HMP will be leaving HMP as well, so there would be one less reason for going to Beechey. We might be able to wave as they fly past on their way out!
Today, we will be interviewed by Anna Hahn, who works for The Nome Nugget on her way to High School in Sitka. The Nugget is on line – google it if you want to know all about Nome.
I would love to joke about getting into trouble with Authority, but I think that would be unwise. Very serious people and to be taken very seriously. A pity – I can see an interesting dissertation on dysfunctionality hovering somewhere out there but I'd prefer not to be in Cuba when I write it.
Lifelong friends indeed Pat – if any of y'all out there are interested in a real adventure, put 'Pat Hahn umiak' into google – fascinating stuff and an amazing family.
And – if any of you are visiting Potter at Royal North Shore, please tell him I'm thinking of him and sending get well vibes.
Enough already – the pic is an Arctic Tern over the salmon filled Sinuk River – we were told that the Tern migrates between the Polar ends of the earth. Stunningly beautiful bird.
