La Ronge to Arviat on Hudson Bay - 55 Days and 1000 miles.
|Day #63 Monday
August 12, 2002
Well it's all over for another year. We're sitting in Arviat after getting picked up at the mouth of "Big River" by Joe Savikataaq. And I have to tell you I can't say enough good things about Joe. He showed up with tea, pop, chocolate bars, juice and more.
|Our plane reservations
are for tomorrow at 2:30 and then we are onto the train
in Churchill about 10:00 pm. My truck is sitting in
Thompson Manitoba so we will be home in La Ronge by
Wednesday night. This was a great trip and although it
was a real grind the last few weeks, it was more than
Now where to go next year. The ideas are already rolling around in my head. Somewhere in the barrens or the land of little sticks is all I know at this point.
I hope anyone who followed the trip got a tiny glimmer of what I feel on my time out here. I'll sure do this all again next year if the folks at Out-There will let me. It's been real fun.
THE END - for this year anyway
