April 14th

We are doing quite well ice wise.  At this time we are able to travel from the landing into the N end.  The hold out this year is Copelands bay.  E Clay reports he can get away from his area but anyone E of his place is still blocked as well the camps across the bay.  He estimates the bay is still got aprox a 40% ice cover.  He did test the temper of the ice and was unable to break through with his boat and thinks it would hold his weight.  The problem is, if this pan starts to move with a wind change, anything could happen.  Hopefully the N winds will hold till this is gone.
