Major Melt... Okay!!! We're coming into a major melt. Last year we had 4. From temps of -19C it is going to plus 2 today.
Last night at check-in on the SBX Bryan said he'd broke new trail up to the top of the big hill out of Windy Pond and was under the cliffs. It had been raining big drops. At 3:30 pm he tried to turn "Miss Piggy" the Scandic 800 around. The snow conditions were such that she just spun out. He shoveled and tried to lift the 900 lb machine but could only move her an inch. The snow was stuck to her undercarriage and track. His shovel wouldn't dislodge it's load. It took 1/2 hour to turn around and he said the big hole that "Miss Piggy" was in after all the shoveling was hard to get out of. Vikki passed on the inform from George about using Kerosene... Bryan said it wouldn't rub off quickly and sounded like a good idea.
This Major Melt is suppose to last til Friday. Bryan said we should all be able to go down to the Inklin cabin. The chickens and our potatoes will be okay without fires for a few days. Vikki is getting ready so no posting til we get back. She is really looking forward to getting out.
