Fairly short day today, flew from Denver to Winnipeg, MB Canada. I am on my way to the Canadian Arctic to shoot some exploration drilling for a new client on mine. I actually have two days of travel to get to my final destination of Ferguson Lake.
I'll be spending the night here in Winnipeg and tomorrow, I'll take a 3 1/2 hour flight to Rankin Inlet, Nunavut. I'll have to spend tomorrow night in Rankin Inlet because flights to the man camp leaves at 7 AM and there are no flights that allow a connection so early in the morning.
You can see how far I have to travel just to get there. I've never been this far north before and I am really looking forward to being there. At this time of year the sun is up for 18 1/2 hours, sunrise at 4 AM and sunset 10:30 PM.
Since I'm traveling along on this assignment, I've packed very light in terms of equipment. Tomorrow I'll show you what I've packed for this trip and I'll talk a bit about the importance of maintaining professional relationships with your clients. I am shooting this assignment as a direct result of past relations with the president of the company I'm shooting for.
