Default Tuktoyaktuk

It is definite, off to north of the Artic circle come late August. One year of teaching in Tuktoyaktuk on the Beaufort. Hopefully lots of Aurora images and some wildlife (Musk Ox roam that area). Just thought I would let you know.

Well, I live not too, too far from the Polar circle... the last aurora I saw was so jok'n breath-taking, you just wouldn't believe it unless you saw it.

Enjoy and hope all works out.

I don't live by far as close to the Polar circle as Ned, but still too close IMO.
Have a nice trip and stay, bring enough whiskey to thaw after work. I'm sure you'll have a very interesting experience, though.

We look forward to your pictures - August is a long way off. Hope you will have internet access so we don't have to wait another year to see them!

Wow! Hope they are paying you well - that's really isolated (I looked at a map, though I had an idea where it was from the name). It'll be great for picture-taking, though the winters will be, ah, "interesting" I suppose. Do keep in touch, if possible, I'll be interested in seeing how it works out for you.

Very cold, very little snow an adventure. Yes Harriet they do pay well. A trip like this may be just what I need to clear my head and give me "focus". A form of emotional de-cluttering. It will not be easy but it will give us some financial freedom in the future.

Have you thought about recommending a colleague when your year's up?
