Well, after 13 days in Nome, Crazy Logistics getting crew to and from the dock and a slew of repairs.
Empiricus Embarks for Point Barrow.
The Ice lead is thin but the South winds continue to encourage melt.
Here is Yesterdays Ice report. The Canadian Hydrographic Survey website describes how to read the charts.

Look forward to our footage of this journey this fall. We have 3 go pros, 3 quality cameras, underwater capability and audio equipment onboard. This will all become a documentary about how to chase a dream.
We have had a great time in Nome and enjoyed the very Generous hospitality of Pat and Sue Hahn. Life long Nome residents with a affinity for fellow explorers.
Thank you Pat and Sue! Maybe someday we can repay your hospitality. Regardless. Your care has been appreciated!
