For the fifth day in a row we are engulfed in thick fog. The fog lifted briefly this afternoon allowing 15 field participants to depart from Haughton, including Lucas Allakariallak, John Blitch, Brent Bos, Charles Frankel, AC Hitch, Greg Klerkx, Larry Lemke, Arnis Mangolds, Peter Smith, Carol Stoker, and my brother Marco. The planes that pulled them out arrived at Haughton full of supplies. But when it came time to fly in new participants, the weather closed in again and they were unable to come. We are now completely fogged in, with visibilities down to 50 meters at times.
