Wishing you safe travels you guys are almost there!! 🤗

Hi! Still in Adak? Hope that you can get out of there ASAP, although I am looking at the weather in that area and see a lot of nasty storms going by. Must be hard to pick out a weather window to make the next passage. Good luck!!

No comment since August 24, but you are now in Ardak. Are you guys ok??? You're 3/4 of the way there to North America!! Janice
