    The news is getting worse by the day...

    This is an excerpt from a news article about 2 teens that just paddled to Hudsons Bay: http://www.startribune.com/local/south/19977609.html?location_refer=Outdoors:highlightModules:3

    Snow was falling the day they began. Snow kept the floatplane from picking them up for an extra day at the end. The last week was sleeting, raining, blowing and under 40 degrees.

    "It seemed like the whole world was never going to change," Colton said. "It was freezing when we started, and it seemed like we paddled right back into winter. I have never been more miserable."

    They arrived Sunday afternoon at York Factory, a historic fur trade site preserved by the Canadian government. No one was home: The post is usually staffed at the beginning of June, but the late spring has delayed its opening.



    I did not know the south end of Hudsons Bay was a late spring too. I had heard the snow was gone the other week so assumed the geese would be on the nests.
