The first leg of the journey...
Hello All -
Well the first leg of my journey has been completed. I am currently in Winnipeg Canada waiting for my next flight up into the arctic, Churchill Canada that is later this afternoon.
A few things to share:
+In the Churchill region there is current 12 hours and 16 minutes of light per day vs. the Morristown, NJ region having 12 hours and 10 minutes of light per day.
+ The coordinates of Churchill are N: 58 degrees, 44' 24" W: 94 degrees, 03' 36" vs. the coordinates of Morristown, NJ being N: 40 degrees, 58" W: 74 degrees, 24' 54"
After doing a little research I thought I would suggest a few things to check out... First, googlemaps has some incredible information that would provide everyone with a little background about the Churchill area. I really enjoyed viewing the video streams that were a part of the picture tab. So I would suggest clicking on the photo tab which would allow you to view some still photos and video streams that have been posted through "youtube." One videostream in particular was awesome, "Lords of the Arctic Polar Bears of Northern Canada." The videostreams with native music in the background which enhances the video experience.
Please feel free to send me questions or comments through the blog. I will be checking comments and posting on a daily basis. I have read and reviewed test blogs but figured I would not publish test posts. So just for clarification I have received test posts from... Jack, the research science class of Morristown High School, Jocelyn, and Jill.
Thank you everyone for your support! I am looking forward to sharing this experience with all of you.
