Up To 29 Icebergs, No Cod Caught and No Polar Bears Seen, At Least Not Yet !

Ralph via SAT phone (transcribed)
Hi this is Ralph. It has been a very, very long day. We started at 4:00 AM this morning. We started off with heavy, heavy fog. The fog has come a couple of times today, but for the most part it has been pretty clear. We have traveled over 200 miles, almost 250 miles. We have only a few more miles to travel. The sun is getting ready to go down, but it has been a beautiful sunset.
We have counted 28 icebergs and we have named a couple of them! The last two were “John Koko” and “Norm The Big Kahuna” The second one was gigantic so we went ahead and named it “Norm”.
We have had a great day! We tried fishing once. All we caught was two that were not very good for eating. We have still not caught the elusive cod fish. We have looked up the banks of a bunch of islands as we went by searching for polar bears, but we have not seen any yet.
As far as we know everything is going well. We should be in to Cartwright in an hour, or an hour and a half, something in that area.
Have a great day and God bless you.
