We Are So Honored To Know All Of You ! Incredible People All Honoring Heroes !

Ralph via SAT phone (transcribed)
Hey, this is Ralph. We finally left Qaqortoq. Anyways, we are on our way to the city of Nanortalik! We will stop there tonight and take some pictures, etc. Nanortalik is in the middle of the south end of Greenland on its west coast.
It was hard to leave the last place. The line of people wanting to meet us was something, at the same time we were trying to load the boat, get fuel and finalize what we did yesterday, change the oil and all that kind of stuff. Everything went well, but we just finally left.
Those people were honored to help us honor heroes, even though they were not Americans, not Canadians and not British, because they were honored to help honor heroes.
The local newspaper reporter paid about $200 to the crane operator to pick up our boat and put it on land for us. We were just honored to be with all of the people wanted to honor. So many children lined up and had their parents involved. They brought their parents around to sign our Greenland flag. It was just unbelievable to be involved in! Again this is what it is all about, honoring heroes, and that is what we saw!
Thank you so much, have a great day and God bless you. Talk to you later.
