We had a great trip to the Arctic. Happily, I didn’t flip my snowmobile or get eaten by a bear, so I met my two criteria for a successful trip. By popular demand, the photos are now up.

In a couple of weeks the job will be sending me up to the McGill Arctic Research Station (M.A.R.S.) on Axel Heiberg Island in northern Canada. I’ll be helping install a satellite Internet link and local wireless networking for the research station. Axel Heiberg is a geologically interesting place, complete with ancient forests and green ice.
