I'm going to Qikiqtarjuak
I got a call today for a short last-minute contract in Qikiqtarjuak. I've been there twice before. Every time I've gone there it's been for a short last-minute contract. I'll leave this Thursday (March 25) and should be back on Easter Monday (April 5).
I'll have a camera with me and my laptop, so I hope to blog a bit while I am there, so check back now and then for the next couple of weeks. I never really got any good pictures in Qik, as my visits were short and during the dark season.
It should be warming up there- I checked the weather and it's supposed to be -25 or so on Thursday (brrrrrr!) but over the weekend might go as high as -3. I'll live. Now that we've passed the equinox the days will be longer there than down here, but Qik isn't in the far north (kind of 1/3 of the way up Baffin Island) so at this time of year there won't be a huge difference.
