Collinson Point

posted August 5, 2013

The CAE lived at Collinson Point, (where Bob Bernard sailed back to because of ice)
between September and June 1913-14. It is just west of the Alaska Yukon border.
There they built a wood frame house with sod turf walls, taken from the tundra.
Captain Bob and Paul visited the site while marooned.

Now they are attempting to get to Sachs Harbour and even hope to meet David and Mack at Terror Island, depending on ice.
At the moment though they have a northern party and a southern party, just like the CAE!
