July 7th: Talked to Susan

Susan called this evening. They were having a rest day.

As figured, there is a tonne of ice. They have been pulling since they got to the coast. The lakes are partly open, but the ocean is still solid. They are finding some leads to paddle in, but the going is a bit slow.

The locals said that Kugaaruk (Pelly Bay) is already open. So hopefully they will find some open water soon!

They have seen one polar bear, 100s of caribou every day, and a whack of seals.
