Foggy Island












When I worked with my partners Kevin and Dan on the shorebird migration study this summer, we were taken by helicopter with all of our supplies to our study site where we spent nearly a month and a half. We obviously had to bring everything we needed, which included a 55 gallon barrel of gas to power our generator, a propane freezer for samples, 3 55 gallon barrels of food, sleeping and working tents and lots of random gear! It took two helicopter trips to get it all there. When the helicopter left for the last time, Kevin and Dan went off to explore Foggy Island, which certainly lived up to its name!

Hi Laura: I found your blog through John in Alaska's blog. My daughter Hilary and I met you during the Yukon Quest. We helped you with Dave's team when he left Dawson.
