Still alive in the blogging world!

Hello my adoring fans!
I have not forgotten my duties as a blogger, and I will be back soon with a massive update. This has been, the most exciting, awesome, kick ass vacation Hughie and I have ever had! I was definitely worth it, and I might go as far to say that it will be worth the next 7 months of winter that we will endure once we arrive back to Kugaaruk!

The house is clean, the bags are packed…the dogs are freaking out – it must be vacation time!


The time has finally arrived – August 3rd, 2009 will be upon us in under 8 hours.  Which means, VACATION!!

A month of relaxation, family, alcoholic beverages & thrill rides at DISNEY!.  However, learning from others as well as our experiences that you can’t take the flights for granted here in Kugaaruk.  It is best to TRY to keep your hopes at a minimum that you will make it out of Kugaaruk the day you planned for.   I have been watching the weather like a hawk and they are calling for some Fog over night with it lifting in the morning.  However, that is the least of our problems the plane could be delayed or cancelled due to maintenance or mechanical problems.   It wouldn’t surprise me that they would cancel or delay our plane; considering the last 3o days!  However,  with that being said we deserve a bone here.  We need out of this community before we both blow up and do something eat raw Narwhale…YIKES!

So all that believe please pray that we will make it out of this community at 2:20pm tomorrow morning and make our way to Yellowknife.

If you don’t hear from me, or if you don’t hear the worlds loudest swear word I’m on my way.   I don’t know if I will have time to update my blog along the way, but as I did the last time in March I’ll do a day-by-day account of the top 20 items.

Take care and be safe!
