Polar Bear Cam

As you know, I'm visiting family up in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada. If you want to see if you can catch me live, go to Polar Bears International and check out their Polar Bear Cam. From Oct 29 -31, they're offering a free live stream to everyone. The camera is manned, and the camera operator is tracking live bears. Sometimes, live bears return the favor, but the camera operator is safely (he hopes!) ensconced on top of a Tundra Buggy (similar to those behemoths that transport you from terminal to terminal at Dulles International Airport).

Vacation Time

I'm heading off on vacation. She doesn't need me until January, and I think it's time to head up to Churchill to visit family during the annual gathering. I know you're thinking polar bears don't typically keep track of their family, but mine does stay in touch. I may wander a bit to check on some other on-line friends but only if they ask. I may drop in from time to time, but I'll be mostly off-line until January.
