Moving to smaller quarters

September 11, 2012 3:23 PM
That's it. About half of the scientists left the icebreaker Sir Wilfrid Laurier and went to Cambridge Bay, where they will be heading home.

Late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning, the boat Martin Bergmann will start its solo trip south to get to the O'Reilly Island region, where one of the two wrecks of the Franklin ships could be.

The Martin Bergmann is so small by comparison with the Laurier. Life on board the Laurier is like staying at a five-star hotel.

The truth? I look forward to going on the Bergmann but this time I think I won't escape being seasick.
