The Berri is going for it!

I just talked to Alex on the sat phone.

He just received my "It's open" message. First my apologies; I write from memory as I have no names on my maps. Starvation cove is the south end of King william, not the north point as I thought. 

Alex was very excited about the ice report. The full length of western coast Boothia is open or very thin (East side of Ross- Larsen- Franklin). The Berri is going to skip Gjoa Haven and move up into Ross for the attempt.

Gods speed.
