I've been under the weather for the last three days and haven't made much progress. I managed to finish my starter gear tonight. It isn't perfect, but hopefully it will be good enough. Sandra Skibsted is traveling from London to film a documentary of this year's Ice Art. I've corresponded with her a bit, and it looks like we'll get to be part of the project. I haven't heard from Sharon this week, but Lars should be back in another week or so. The weather is warming up in Fairbanks (highs above 0°F!), and the days are getting longer by several minutes each day.
