Track Healy Through the Arctic!

You can track Healy's position as she makes her way across the Arctic by clicking here. It takes a while for it to update our position (looks like about every 9 hours or so) but it will still give a general locale.

We are definitely getting closer to the ice shelf. About 30 minutes ago we passed some pretty big chunks of ice just floating along. In a few hours we should be passing a 30-mile long ice flow that will hopefully (fingers crossed) be full of polar bears!

The ship had Alaskan king crab legs for lunch today. Right now the smell of freshly baked cookies is wafting through the science lounge. I gotta tell you, food-wise I think that the Healy just beat out every other ship I have ever been on!
