July 24 – Kugaaruk

Just got off the phone with Susan!

They weren’t able to leave today due to high winds. In the early morning the winds got up to ~40 knots (~75 km/h). They were invited to stay in a house so they broke camp, which was quite difficult. At one point Susan laid flat on the dismantled tent to keep it down. A gust of wind entered the front and lifted her off the ground and rolled her off the tent!. Bob also enjoyed chasing his Thermarest down the beach after the wind moved a giant anchor rock that was holding it down!

They plan to head off tomorrow.

  1. Nothing can hold Susan down!

  2. It was nice to meet the crew today and take them down to see the Bowhead bones. You are on quite the adventure, an experience of a lifetime for sure. All the best on your way to Repulse! Take care and be safe.

  3. Was it fun though ?
