After a delightfully uneventful flight to Fairbanks, Lars and I spent two days hard at work in the shop at Belfair. We have so many wonderful tools this year! I'll have to post photos of them, but I am unable to at the moment.
At Ice Park today we drew site number 42. Excellent! If you are in Fairbanks, we hope you'll visit us over the next three days. We've already unloaded some equipment at the site, and the rest of our stuff is ready to go in the morning. Our ice block has been oriented and placed (something that didn't happen until the first morning of competition last year), so we are ready to attack the ice with the giant chainsaw at 9:00 AM sharp.
