“It was a two hour flight back. It really put me in touch with how much winter I was actually immersed in… By the time I got to Great Slave Lake, there was some water on the ice. Some of the rivers had rapids and falls in them, although the quieter areas of the rivers were still frozen.” – Will Steger, May 28, 2018. Great Slave Lake, NWT. Day 70.

    Your dispatches were amazing. I listened to all of them, many of them more than once, some of them many times. I especially loved the way you spoke of your Ojibwe friends, the trappers, and the families that you have known for generations. I really admire the connection you’ve made and the respect. Very inspiring!! Thank you for sharing your experience.
