Ross was up very early this morning with his 4hrs jetlag and went to town for an early morning walk and sightseeing plus breakfast in a café. I was still in bed writing my last two updates early morning, and talking to Europe on the phone. We finished the last gear organizing, went to the beach for an “authentic background” wave noise interview for the KNOM radio station, and then it was museum time!
Nome has a history of some big-time gold rush to display, the history of the Eskimo natives with all their fishing and hunting traditions, and the story of the Iditarod sled dog race. We spent a few interesting hours in there!
At 5 pm, Leonard and his girlfriend were picking us up for the beach cam tonight, as we did not like to bother anyone Saturday early morning to drive us. Ross needs to get used to the set of gear he has and he is sharing with me, and slowly settling into the trip. He is not used to carrying so much gear around in a kayak! Well, logistics is a big part of the trip. It was a sunny but still windy evening, tomorrow’s weather is thankfully nice, as much as the next few days will be!
