Repairs Done ! Getting Ready To Leave Qaqortoq and head to Nanortalik Greenland

Ralph via SAT phone (transcribed)
Hi this is Ralph. We have been here in Qaqortoq Greenland basically for almost 48 hours. We arrived here the day before yesterday and we are getting ready to do our final load up and get going. We met a lot of nice people here. A lot of the kids came out and signed our Greenland flag, that was kind of neat, they all want to be heroes and we want to honor wounded heroes and that is very important thing to us. We have fixed the repairs on the boat that we needed to. We will no longer have our sacrificial skeg that we used to have, but it's all taking care of and the nice people at the Qaqortoq hostel have been very helpful to us and we are very, very grateful for that. In fact they are giving us a ride to the store right now. I hurt my hand a couple of years ago and it’s sore now in the same place, so I am looking for a support for it.
But things are going good the boat is good and all repairs made. We are ready to go, and so we're heading on out to Nanortalik, and then going up rivers that cut across the south part of the country. I guess its all part of the Atlantic Ocean, all these islands in the South of Greenland, and then coming out on the other side where there is a bunch of ice. Because of the ice we are going further south than we anticipated. From what I understand it is absolutely gorgeous. I will tell you more later. Thanks so much, have a great day and God Bless you.
