Arctic Weather & Dogsledding
Wednesday, January 22, 2014
I brought my running stuff to Churchill. I kind of want to go for a run just to say I did it :) (yesterday it was -63C here). Of course I do have cold weather running stuff but not extreme cold running stuff. Maybe I will just go out for a fast mile haha.
I've been up here working this week (I collect traditional knowledge from northern elders about the land/water) and one of the elders offered to take me on his dogsled. So barring a nasty windchill, I may be trying that in an hour! That would be beyond exciting.
I have been missing home this trip, I know Burke acts up when I leave so that's hard on Tommy. Luckily I don't have another work trip until March so that is good. Also been living on microwavable food/no exercise so that is difficult too.
Hopefully I will be able to go on the dogsled and post some pictures later!
