Stuck in Nome, Alaska

Thursday, September 13, 2007 Nome, Alaska
Well it had to happen sometime. We thought we would be waiting in the ice somewhere up north, but that did not happen in the mostly ice-free waters. Now it seems to have caught up with us. Storms keep brewing in the Bering Sea and we have had up to 56 knots along the sea wall where we are tied up. Waiting is difficult and trying our patience, but we'll make it out of here and south to Dutch Harbor...eventually.

A nice surprise this morning was to be informed of Doug Belkin's fine article in the Wall Street Journal. It was published today and I have just seen it online. Great story about the Northwest Passage and Cloud Nine. Check it out for sure.

Some of you have mentioned there is no direct link on this blog to my website. Yes, it is there on my profile link, but just so you know my website is
