As you know, I am traveling through the Northeast Passage using the trans arctic drift. We have been trapped in the ice at Chuan Inlet. But the summer months have come and we are now entering the Bering Straits. I will soon be leaving the Maud. This slow journey has been much like the one I endeavored in going through the Northwest Passage. It is all time consuming. I am thinking of next time, taking to the air. I understand an Italian named Nobilese is building a drigible in hopes of going to the North Pole. I know you remember the ill-fated attempt by Andree to go by balloon, but if there is one thing guaranteed to arrouse curiosity, it is to attempt to do the impossible. And who knows, perhaps someday, some one will even climb Mt. Everest.
Anyways, just wanted to let you know what's on my mind.
Oh, and how is Jackson and that dog? I half expected to bump in to someone on this trip, but except for the mapping and scientific studies, it has been rather uneventful. Here's to hoping for greater adventures.
