Stand By to Wales, Alaska. The weather window is accurate!
Charles Hedrich and 'Rowing Ice' (boat name) are in Wales, Alaska.
Wales is an Inuit village of about fifty people within 200 km north of Nome when Charles landed a week ago. Located on the Bering Strait, near the Arctic Circle at the entrance of the Northwest Passage.
Charles and always accompanied by his eldest son Nelson, assistant Adventure there until departure.
Ready to go, still waiting for the green light from Michel Meulnet weather router . And things seem to be clear! The countdown is on, the weather window will be there within 72 hours! A statement which accurately reflects the Adventure where face the elements and nature it is always difficult to calculate.
"I'm in Alaska Bering Strait side and I see the Russian coast!"
"I would have left immediately but the wait is part of the Adventure"
"There is a lot of distraction between the carcass cross-polar bear on the beach of Wales or meetings with Inuit very very friendly and all the time trying to laugh"Click on maps to enlarge
