July 1, 2002 - Resolute Bay, Nunavut

By: Dr. Pascal Lee

The weather closed in early this morning, with rain and fog. We ended up not being able to launch to, let alone put-in on, Devon today. Instead, we joined in with Resolute Bay residents in Canada Day festivities and met with various community leaders. We also hired a few more students for the summer. Our cargo, now stored at the Polar Shelf hangar, is all set to go. Maybe tomorrow.
