Hi this is Ralph hey i want to take this opportunity to thank all of you who are following our voyage we are very grateful for all of you. We are in Saint John's today and will today until tomorrow morning about 930, when we are leaving heading up the road, will stop at Saint Anthony's and then on Cartwright and then will make our crossing over to Greenland. Bob and I are staying the hotel last night provided by a very generous person we met at the dock. He provided two nights at the hotel, unbelievable we're very grateful for that and also another gentleman heard us on TV, actually came up and handed us a 20 dollar bill to help with expenses another gentleman provided a meal at a very nice restaurant last night I can't believe this, this is Canada not the USA and these people are just unbelievably friendly. In the city of saint john's and providing this nice things for us We did make the alive newscasts on one of the local television stations som other television station are coming out to get an interview . We got a really nice write up in the telegram which is very nice and I am surprised the Globe hasn’t picked it up, but we're glad that the Telegram has. Again very nice people here in Canada. I just got a email from someone, I don't think he wants his name out there, wonderful, wonderful person just following us, offered to pay $1,000 for gasoline. We are very grateful for that thank you so much and God Bless
