UPDATE: 18 MARCH 2014
Mike, K9AJ and myself both now have other QRL and priorities necessitating a change in our longstanding plans for NA-172.
This will fortunately give us more additional time to address the Polar Bear issue safety measures & precautions necessary for this Expedition in greater detail. Our number one concern is always "SAFETY FIRST" !!!
Our plans will still require a 2 week extended lodging on the mainland to wait out any bad solar condx or X-Flares which may occur, as well as Auroral Oval positioning during our journey. There will be a narrow window of opportunity between when the local Polar Ice actually melts and the increasing fog problems in Northern KL7 as Summer progresses.
