Hi Folks:

Looks like we are in for the first cold night of the year...so far. The forcast is calling for minus 30 and it looks like we might get there and then some...it's already minus 29.

Overall it was a good long weekend, too short of course, but nice nonetheless. We did a little bit of walking and a bit of snowmobiling, watched some movies, cooked some good meals and generally took it easy. We are just four work weeks away from the trip back east. It's been a year of change for us...a long year and in certain ways a hard year - but a rewarding year. The hardest part is working a whole year and not having any time off. Well, that's not exactly true, we did have a few days off for a trip to Whitehorse. And Lorie had a few more days off for a trip to Edmonton. The month off over Christmas will be great. It will be great for us to see our families and friends, and have the time off work.

Lorie and I, and another friend of ours Eric, did one short snowmobile trip yesterday; only about an hour off into the bush, but it was fun. We also brought Ripley along and ran him so that he would be tired for the rest of the evening. It was good to get out on the land again. Unfortunately the wind was coming up and a bit of a blizzard was forecast, so we turned back. There will be plenty of more opportunities.

That's all for now. I have been taking some flak for how infrequently I have been posting. One reason is that I'm not sure what people want to read. If you have any questions, be sure to post them and I will do my best to answer them. If you have requests of things you'd like pictures of, post those too. I'll do my best to accommodate. Once the ice roads to Tuk and Aklavik open, we will travel a bit more and take some picture for you.

Cheers!
