After two years of very successful ice thickness surveys north of Qikiqtarjuaq, I was glad that we found an opportunity this year to finally visit the regions south of Qikiqtarjuaq, near Padloping Island, thus gathering information in all directions from Qikiqtarjuaq. Together with Jay and Eric we enjoyed four most remarkable days with great company, beautiful scenery and weather, and the most amazing polar bear spottings. Living off the land with fulmars and cod were some other highlights of this unforgettable trip, as was the excellent data quality and the documentation of thin ice regions and slush along our 440 km long journey. Thank you Jay for your insightful guidance, and France and Eric for your hospitality!
