My sleeping bag, oh yes my wonderful, magnificent sleeping bag.

This alteration assemblage, is identical to that found associated with many lode-gold deposits in the Superior province. These look like the same spots that the caribou Angel shot yesterday had. Some confusion developed during this operation and when the engine was started the engineer was struck by the propeller and seriously injured. We set up the tents in the cold light of the sun.

It was evidently decided not to complete the rebuilding of the Otter. I had brought some to watch on my computer should the weather turn bad. A pot of caribou was boiling, the marrow from the bones thickening the salt water into a rich broth.
