Meanwhile, there is an apparent Arctic heat wave (65-70F ?? wow...), no freeze recently (hence more mosquitoes blowing in than usual), and fuel and food are in *very* short supply (no eggs or milk, not even powdered). All of my project gear, besides some initial field communications gear, was also left behind in Resolute (to try to fit in more food... they are short of Twin Otter charter flights this year).
And a group of 4 has gone over to ferry the yellow Humvee from across Devon Island... good luck to them.
