Safely home again. Sachs Harbour to Inuvik on the 15th, Inuvik to Edmonton on the 16th, and Edmonton to Ottawa on the 17th.

In Inuvik I was able to meet with the Western Arctic Field Unit of Parks Canada. I briefed them on the research we accomplished, the places we documented, and the incredible events and adventures of the trip. We also discussed the next phase of producing the documentary film on the CAE. Parks Canada seems very much interested in the CAE anniversary and may be able to support the film production once I get other commitments in place. They have an Inuvialuktun version of the CAE banners that are flying in Ottawa for distribution to the northern communities.

Over the next days, I will be adding photographs and content to the blog and our website. I have over 8 hours of videotape to view, plus a thousand or more still images to sort through. There will be a CBC interview on Tuesday and a few other invitations to respond to. It is a different excitement to launching the expedition, but an exciting time nevertheless. Stay tuned!
