July 30 – update

Bob called Linda and reported that with the terrain of the land, the cold(~4c) and the ice they feel like they are on the moon. They had great traveling yesterday with the sails up. But it only lasted a short while and they found ice again. They sometimes find a channel through, but it has not be easy or quick. They are stuck for a few days now with so much ice, rain and wind, and needing to catch high and high high tides to keep moving. They sometimes wonder if they’ll be able to keeping moving, but are hopeful that things will “break” and they ‘ll be able to move fast again.

They’ve seen a few sand pipers, one caribou and have had foxes check out their camp while they sleep — they’ve tripped the electric fence alarm a couple times.
