Time For The COLD Weather Gear-Made Many Friends In Cartwright In Only About 24 Hours

Ralph via SAT phone (transcribed – 2 calls combined)
I can’t pull up my fish. I am hanging off of the back of the boat!
*****(There is poor audio on SAT phone and it is impossible to transcribe the call)***** Once we were about 30 minutes off shore we started putting on our ‘cold-weather’ gear, which is long underwear and boots. Also we are rearranging our sleeping area. It may not be much but it is an improvement.
We are sitting much deeper in the water because we are carrying a lot more fuel.
We were in Cartwright just about 24 hours. It’s amazing how many friends you can make in 24 hours. Unbelievable, many people came by and donated to our cause, too many to mention by name. George and Steve donated $200.00 others donated $20.00 and we are grateful for all. Conoco Phillips and other businesses please remember we are still looking for sponsors. You can go to our website www.crosstheatlantic.com and find a link there for donations and sponsorships.
Thanks again, God Bless and take care. Bye
