In Tasiilaq, all well, ski training and packing pulks. Helicopter to ice sheet tomorrow. Clear skies here, warm -1 degrees. Concerned about warm temps West Coast.
Maybe melt rivers / lakes on West Coast. Otherwise very positive, excited to get underway. Missing all at home. No bears yet but plenty of icebergs
