Pos: 63.0369,-163.5255 Loc: Kotlik Acc: Hilleberg Keron 4 tent Dist: 60,1 km Start: 07:15 End: 19:55 I thought I could have a good night’s sleep here in the middle of nowhere in the Yukon Delta, but sure, at midnight one of the relentless motorboats roared past. Thank goodness I was awake anyway for a pee. […]

Pos: 62.1632,-165.6461 Loc: Melatolik Creek Acc: Hilleberg Keron 4 tent no paddling today I wrote the update for yesterday premature, assuming not much will be happening all day long.
